One item in the city’s budget items will roll out across Alexandria streets throughout this year.

In a newsletter, Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson said the proposed FY 2024 budget includes $5.25 million for road repaving around Alexandria, with $64.6 million for the next decade.

This year’s road repaving budget is a slight increase over last year, which included $5.1 million for road repaving.

Streets are prioritized based on their Pavement Condition Inventory (PCI) score and staff coordinating with utility work and other projects, Wilson wrote.
