UPDATE (6:04 PM):: This has affected DASH Bus service in the area.


If you in the North Ride/Fairlington area tonight, be wary of this obstruction on Kenwood Avenue between Valley Drive and Crestwood Drive. You can take Valley Drive to Crestwood Avenue to get around this until the City of Alexandria responds. Looks like the tree is blocking both lanes of the roadway.
