It seems like construction cranes have been flocking to Alexandria streets recently. Just after a street closure due to crane activity in the Braddock neighborhood, crane activity is closing a block of King Street this Friday.

From 9 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 15, to 3 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 16, the 1500 block of King Street (between Peyton Street and Harvard Street) will be closed to pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

According to a release:

On Thursday, February 15 from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. on Friday, February 16 (weather permitting), Extreme Steel Crane & Rigging will be closing the 1500 block of King Street between Peyton Street and Harvard Street for a sidewalk and road closure. This closure is necessary to place a crane and trucks in the roadway to hoist HVAC equipment to the building located at 1555 King Street. Parking will be restricted along this block during the scheduled work hours, and noise levels during early morning hours will be kept to a minimum.

All westbound traffic on King Street at Peyton Street will be directed to Cameron Street, and back to King Street. All eastbound traffic on King Street at Daingerfield Road will be directed to Prince Street, then S. Peyton Street, and finally back to King Street.
