Major Street Resurfacing Program
The City of Alexandria maintains and manages
more than 560 lane miles of streets annually. In fiscal year 2017 City
Council increased the City's paving budget to $6,650,000, a 18.75% increase
over FY 2016. Additionally, 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 2016,
VDOT announced that the City will be awarded an additional $500,000 through the
FY 2017 VDOT Primary Extensions Grant. This money will be used to pave
sections of N/S Patrick St. (Route 1) 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 paving program will begin in early-July and through early fall, starting
again in the spring of 2017. For detailed information about locations of
paving projects and schedules, please see the information provided below.
