After being ripped up and worked on for months, two popular parking lots in downtown Alexandria will soon be back in business.

The Traveler’s Inn lot between 5th and 6th Avenue East was already being used Monday while work was finishing up.


Workers still plan to put a wear course on the lot this year, stripe it and pave the alley by Sixth Avenue Wine and Ale, according to Tim Schoonhoven, city engineer.
