Complete Streets and Repaving
Complete Streets are streets designed to accommodate all users. As part of the Complete
Streets Policy adopted by City Council in 2011, T&ES was tasked to
identify and implement projects that improved safety and convenience of all
users as a part of routine street repaving and maintenance whenever possible.
When streets are resurfaced, this provides an opportunity to upgrade
elements of the street to better accommodate people of all ages and
abilities. For all streets, staff aim to
improve safety, accessibility, and mobility.
To better plan for these projects, the City collects input on changes that can be implemented as a part of repaving plans, such as upgrading
curb ramps, adding missing crosswalks, upgrading high priority crossings and
repairing sidewalks. In conjunction with
many of the resurfacing projects, the City aims to implement recommendations
from the Pedestrian
and Bicycle Master Plan, Safe
Routes to School Plan Program recommendations and the Vision Zero program. During
the development of these plans, many detailed suggestions from the community were
received will be incorporated into repaving plans.
Residents know their streets and can provide additional information that can help make the street safer. City staff will review all suggestions but will prioritize implementation based on feasibility, safety, coordination with the resurfacing team, and available funding.
The City regularly collects community input on streets that are scheduled to be repaved. The community survey for the FY2020 repaving schedule is now closed. Please check back later or sign up for Alexandria eNews to receive a notification when the next survey is available.
Note: If you have a maintenance request, please submit it through the City's Call.Click.Connect service.
