2018 T&ES Open House
Due to safety concerns related to forecasted heavy rain and thunderstorms for Saturday, September 8, this event has been canceled.
Join the City of Alexandria in recognizing the contributions of public works professionals in our community. The City’s Department of Transportation & Environmental Services (T&ES) will host its second annual “We are T&ES” Open House on Saturday, September 8, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at 2900 Business Center Dr. This free, family-friendly event will be cancelled in the event of rain.
The Open House will provide an up-close, hands-on look at the work of the Department, which oversees City refuse collection, street cleaning, sewer maintenance, recycling, water quality, traffic engineering, and transit services, among other responsibilities. Learn about vital City services and meet the staff responsible for keeping Alexandria mobile, clean, safe and eco-friendly.
Activities will include:
Climb inside city trucks and learn what it’s like to drive them safely around Alexandria from the people who operate them on a daily basis
Learn more about the city's composting efforts and drop off your weekly compost donation
Mock Traffic Corner
A replica of a street corner—complete with a miniature working stoplight—will be used to highlight the importance of pedestrian safety and help teach children to be aware, alert, and attentive when crossing the street
