Due to the deterioration of the roadway and crew availability, the City of Alexandria has determined that E. Glebe Road between Route 1 and Commonwealth Avenue needs to be repaved as soon as possible due to its current condition.

Therefore, the paving will begin on Monday, November 9 and last approximately one week.

During all times of construction, at least one lane will remain open for reversible traffic, maintained by traffic control and flaggers.

After the paving is complete, the center line will be marked with temporary tape so that thermoplastic can be installed at a later date, most likely in the Spring, after the public outreach has been completed to determine other improvements to the road, such as bike facilities and crosswalks.

The City is planning to do a “Complete Streets” project for the street in the Spring of 2016, and there will be public outreach with the Lynhaven community this Winter to begin discussion on the additional needs for the road.
