Public Works Services
The City of Alexandria's Public Works division provides maintenance and repairs for all City sewers, streets, sidewalks and fire hydrants; maintains stream beds, weirs and stream banks; maintains drainage tunnels, box culverts and storm water pollution removal facilities; maintains bridges; and conducts snow removal and flood control operations.
The King Street Retail Corridor Maintenance Plan includes cleaning the sidewalks, streets, and light poles along the corridor. Staff are on King Street daily clearing sidewalks, sweeping the streets, emptying the trash and recycling canisters, collecting leaves, and performing other necessary tasks to maintain a clean and welcoming appearance. Learn more about King Street beautification and levels of service.
Due to heavy rainfall and recent storms throughout the region, substantial rainwater has accumulated in short periods of time, resulting in some nuisance flooding and sewer backups. The City is working to resolve these issues: for more information, visit alexandriava.gov/FloodAction. Report a sewer backup online or contact 311 or 703.746.4311.
