King Street-Bradlee Safety & Mobility Enhancements
The City of Alexandria is seeking community feedback on mobility, safety, access, and stormwater issues along King Street between N. Quaker Lane and Menokin Drive. The purpose of this project is to evaluate existing safety issues and develop concept designs for future improvements.
This portion of King Street was identified for multimodal improvements in the City's 2021 adopted Alexandria Mobility Plan and is a priority location to install enhanced bicycle facilities and additional sidewalks to complete gaps in the City's existing bicycle and sidewalk network. Safety improvements along this corridor will help the City reach the Vision Zero goal of eliminating all fatal and severe crashes.

The City is also hosting three pop-up events where you can complete the feedback form in person:
- Wednesday, September 27 at the Bradlee Shopping Center from 3 - 7 p.m.
- Date Change Due to Weather: Saturday, September 30 at Fairlington Presbyterian Church from 9 a.m. to noon
- Date Change Due to Weather: Saturday, September 30 at the Bradlee Shopping Center from noon to 3 p.m.
The Study Area consists of the King Street Corridor and parallel access road, from N. Quaker Lane in the east, to just north of Menokin Drive on the west. No design changes to the intersection of North Quaker Lane, King Street and West Braddock Road are being considered as part of this project.
The goals of this project are to:
- Improve mobility, safety, and access for all roadway users of all ages, abilities and modes of travel.
- Install safer pedestrian access and bicycle facilities which connect into the surrounding network.
- Improve existing stormwater treatment in the corridor to reduce instances of standing water.
- Maintain or enhance existing transit facilities.
