Pothole ImageStreet Maintenance

The Street Maintenance Section is responsible for repairing all sidewalks, curbs and gutters, pavement areas in the public right of way. In addition this Section is responsible for snow removal, pothole patching, guardrail, fence and barrier repairs, as well as bike path and trail repairs on request. The Street Maintenance Section places and programs variable message boards as part of the traffic management and control associated with it's activities, as well as for other City Departments. This Section also supports other City Departments with their construction activities.

Each year the Street Maintenance Section resurfaces approximately 22-25 lane miles of City streets using funds provided. Funding for this work is provided annually by the Virginia Department of Transportation based upon a formula that is derived from the total lane miles of paved roadway within the City of Alexandria. This funding also provides for concrete curb and gutter work, asphalt patching and localized repair and engineering studies. The State inspects the City streets, in conjunction with City inspectors, and directs which streets are to be repaired each year.

In addition, approximately 2000 linear feet of brick and concrete sidewalk are repaired or replaced each year by the Street Maintenance Section along with some additional work supplemented by private contractors.
