A major upgrade is in the works for 50th Avenue in south Alexandria.

City leaders say it will make the road safer, align it with an existing wider section of the road, and provide a better access route to the new high school that will open in 2014.


At its meeting Monday night, the Alexandria City Council agreed to proceed with the project, estimated to cost $3.1 million, after holding a public hearing that drew concerns from landowners who will be assessed some of the costs.
