State aid cuts hit city streets: List of roads needing reconstruction grows longer

Email News Alerts

State aid cuts to Alexandria are hitting the streets.

At Monday night's meeting, the Alexandria City Council approved an engineering contract for next year's local street overlay projects, which if not for the aid cuts, should have been done this year.


The city, according to engineer Tim Schoonhoven, is "doing a triage" on street work, spending money only on streets that are in good enough shape to save.

Expenses to other roads are limited to pothole repair.
