Alexandria Crosswalk

Construction continues this summer

As part of the City of Alexandria’s Complete Streets and Street Resurfacing programs, safety improvements will be made at several locations in Alexandria this summer.

The improvements include crosswalk enhancements, pedestrian and bicycle improvements, and adjustments to parking restrictions to provide additional parking along Stevenson Avenue and its intersection with Yoakum Parkway. New crosswalks, accessibility improvements, and bike lanes will be installed on North Hampton Drive between King Street and Braddock Road, and additional pedestrian and bicycle improvements will be installed on Monroe Avenue between Stonewall Road and Leslie Avenue.

During project construction, lane closures, sidewalk closures and temporary parking restrictions may occur.
