Restrictions in Effect for 100 block of Duke Street and 200 block of S. Lee
New parking restrictions are now in effect for the 100 block of Duke Street (between Union and Lee Streets) and the 200 block of S. Lee Street (between Prince and Duke Streets). Similar to the restrictions enacted over the summer on the 100 block of Prince Street, these restrictions require any vehicle without a District 1 residential parking permit to pay to park on the block for up to 2 hours.
New signage has been installed noting the requirement to pay, hours and days of restriction, and payment options. Parkers choosing to park on the block can use the City’s pay-by-phone app, Pango, or purchase a parking receipt from a meter on an adjacent block.
These restrictions are allowed through the City’s
Residential Pay by Phone pilot program, which was approved by City Council in
November 2016. The goal of the pilot program is to provide adequate on-street
parking for residents by encouraging non-residential parkers to park in metered
or garage spaces by eliminating free two-hour parking on the residential
blocks. City staff will evaluate before and after parking conditions on the
blocks with these restrictions to determine if this is an effective tool that
could be expanded to other areas.
More information about the pilot program can be found at www.alexandriava.gov/Parking under "Overview of Parking Restrictions and Districts." Interested residents can submit a petition to staff for review and consideration before the Traffic and Parking Board. Please contact Katye North at email@example.com for more information.
