City ditches Thomas Drive road project

Email News Alerts

Call it a sign of the shaky economic times.

A plan to improve Thomas Drive - one of Alexandria's few remaining gravel streets - has been put on hold.


Eight property owners in the area submitted a petition to the Alexandria City Council opposing the project, which had been initiated by another group of property owners in the area last month.

They objected to the estimated $250,100 cost of the project and the assessments tied to it - an average of $7,146 per lot.
