Alexandria’s streets have been getting the spotlight for the last few months of repaving efforts, but through August: it’s the sidewalks’ turn.
Alexandria’s Department of Transportation and Environmental Services released the street repaving and maintenance schedule for August, showing prioritization of seven sidewalks city-wide.
Over the course of this month, the following sidewalks are scheduled to get repairs:
- Gibbon Street (from South Payne Street to South Union Street)
- West Braddock Road (from King Street to Russell Road)
- John Carlyle Street (from Eisenhower Avenue to Duke Street)
- Hancock Avenue (from West Braddock to End)
- Queen Street (from North West to North Union Street)
- Rutland Place
- East Windsor Avenue
Maintenance this month is also scheduled to work on the West Reed alleyway (between Evans Lane and Wilson Avenue) in the Lynhaven neighborhood and Westview Terrace (between Janneys Lane and Hilltop Terrace) in Taylor Run.
The city is also making guardrail repairs this month on the eastbound side of Duke Street and on Van Dorn Street.

If you’ve been grumbling about potholes in Alexandria’s northern neighborhoods, there’s good news: relief is on the way.
The City of Alexandria released the lineup for upcoming street repaving and the list of prioritized streets is a whose-who of northern Alexandria residential avenues.
According to the release, the first two weeks of repaving will hit:
- Lynhaven Drive (from Wilson Avenue to End)
- Evans Lane (Richmond Highway to East Reed Avenue)
- Montrose Avenue (from East Raymond Avenue to Richmond Highway)
- Terrett Avenue (from East Mt Ida to East Randolph Avenue)
- Stewart Avenue (from Mount Vernon Avenue to East Randolph Avenue)
- Executive Avenue (from Kentucky Avenue to Mount Vernon Avenue)
- Alabama Avenue (from Kentucky Avenue to Carolina Place)
The release said that residents on those streets will receive advance notice of paving through project signs and/or letters, with temporary “no parking” signs posted. The release warned that the affected streets will have limited access during repaving, but local traffic will be able to pass through and access driveways.
“City staff will be on site managing the project, and at the end of each workday, roads will be fully open to allow for overnight parking and traffic,” the release said.
