City Proposes Bicycle Lanes

Posted in Traffic & Safety


The portion of King Street from Russell Road to Janneys Lane is scheduled to be resurfaced this fall. In conjunction, the City is proposing to narrow the moving lanes to provide traffic calming and install bicycle lanes in both directions. 

The City has received a number of requests from residents and civic associations for traffic calming along King Street. This project is intended to slow vehicle speeds and provide a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists as well as safer routes to the nearby schools. The bike lanes would require the removal of parking along King Street from West
Cedar Street to West View Terrace.
public meeting will be held to gather community input regarding this project on September 18th at 7pm in the cafeteria at Maury Elementary.
If you cannot attend the meeting on Wednesday night, the City of Alexandria is taking a poll on this matter. Please click here to take the poll.
