The City of Alexandria plans to reopen Monroe Avenue on Tuesday, September 8. This is the final component of the Monroe Avenue Bridge replacement project.

The Alexandria City Council approved the straightening of the Monroe Avenue Bridge as an element of the Potomac Yard development plan. The straightened bridge provides four lanes of traffic and two dedicated turning lanes.  In addition, a pedestrian/bicycle sidewalk is located on the east side and west side of the bridge. The extended Monroe Avenue connects to the newly constructed network of streets in the Potomac Yard development.

"The Monroe Avenue project is an investment in the City of Alexandria’s basic infrastructure and roadways,” said Mayor Euille. "This ensures safer travel for both residents and visitors of Alexandria, and ultimately strengthens our community for the future."

A formal dedication ceremony for the Monroe Avenue Bridge replacement project will be held at a future date.
