Sewer Backup Information

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 as soon as possible, report a sewer backup online or contact 311 or 703.746.4311.  For more information, visit

Major Street Resurfacing Program 

The City of Alexandria maintains and manages more than 560 lane miles of streets annually. In additional to the City Council approved funding, the City participates in the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) State Revenue Sharing Program as well as leverages grant opportunities as they become available.  In July 2018, VDOT announced that the City will be awarded an additional $1,000,000 through the FY 2019 VDOT Primary Extensions Grant. This money will be used to pave sections of Duke St. and will allow for additional paving and related sidewalk improvements to be completed this fiscal year. City staff uses an objective pavement management system to identify the condition of roads in the City, with the goal of paving the worst streets first.  This year's program will run from August through early fall, then resume in the spring.  For detailed information about locations of paving projects and schedules, please see the information provided below.
