FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 19, 2009

Washington Street Reconstruction & Pavement Begins Monday, March 2

The City of Alexandria’s Department of Transportation & Environmental Services, Maintenance Division will begin the process of reconstructing and paving North and South Washington Street. This reconstruction process will be a two phase project as follows:

  • Phase I: Starting March 2, 2009, work on select concrete and brick work for curbs and gutter; ADA approved access ramps; and designated driveway aprons will begin. Phase I will take place during the hours of 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday over the next four months. 
  • Phase II: Starting July 6, 2009, the pavement and rehabilitation of North and South Washington Street, specifically from Green to First Streets, will be done at night from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. to minimize transportation impacts to this arterial roadway. It is estimated that this phase will continue through September 2009.   

During the reconstruction and pavement period there will be times when all vehicles must be removed from the street. Temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted to notify residents of on-street parking restrictions during the reconstruction and pavement process. Please be aware that reconstruction and paving is subject to change due to inclement weather.
