*NEW: We want to hear from you! Provide input on your experience using South Pickett Street via our online feedback form by December 22!
The purpose of this project is to implement improvements on South Pickett Street between Duke Street and Edsall Road to enhance mobility, access, and safety for all roadway users.
Project Area Map
South Pickett Street is a four-lane roadway that provides access between Duke Street and Edsall Road. West of Edsall Road, it is a two-lane roadway with bike lanes and on-street parking. South Pickett Street features a mix of land uses, including high-density residential and commercial properties.
The Proposed Bicycle Network in the adopted Alexandria Mobility Plan calls for a dedicated bicycle facility on South Pickett Street. The City's Complete Streets Five-Year Work Plan includes a project to evaluate bike lanes on South Pickett Street. A bike lane would not only improve safety for people biking, but could enhance safety for people driving, create opportunities for enhanced pedestrian crossings, and provide traffic calming.
In 2023, the City of Alexandria was awarded a technical assistance grant through the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments' Transportation-Land Use Connections Program to study the corridor and develop design options.
