After work on city sidewalks and alleyways, Alexandria is headed back to Seminary Road for more neighborhood street resurfacing over the next week.

Between yesterday (Sept. 6) and next Friday (Sept. 16), the Department of Transportation and Environmental Services will be hitting up several neighborhood streets around Seminary Hill and Arlandria.

“Residents whose streets are scheduled for resurfacing receive advance notice of paving work — typically by displayed project signs and/or letters,” the city said in a release. “Temporary ‘No Parking’ signs will also be posted before work begins. Please be sure to observe signs to avoid tickets and towing of vehicles.”

The full list of streets being resurfaced over the next week:

  • Bennett Street (from Saylor Place to end)
  • Saylor Place (entire length)
  • Sterling Avenue (from North Quaker Lane to end)
  • Coventry Lane (from North Quaker Lane to end)
  • South Floyd Street (from Duke Street to Wheeler Avenue)
  • Notabene Drive (from Old Dominion Boulevard to Four Mile Road)
  • Four Mile Road (from Mount Vernon Avenue to Florence Drive)
  • Aspen Street (from Landover Road to Russell Road)

Repaving season in Alexandria continues, this week with some neighborhoods south of Duke Street getting some love.

After repaving around the North Ridge neighborhood earlier this month, repaving is continuing in Del Ray and some of the streets south of Duke Street are getting some much-needed attention from yesterday through next Friday, Aug. 5.

Several of the neighborhood’s main streets, like South Gordon Street, South Ingram Street and Venable Avenue will be repaved.

Diagonal Road, which as the slightly unimaginative name suggests runs diagonally between Duke Street and King Street just outside of the Metro station, will also be undergoing repairs.
