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.

Community Input

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 feedback form for the FY2021 repaving schedule is now closed. Please check back later or sign up for Alexandria eNews to receive a notification when the next input opportunity is available.
