Alexandria’s Broadway reconstruction project hit a snag this week.

The outside edge of some of the recently poured concrete, a strip of 12-inches, had to be removed and replaced because of a problem with the placement of tie-bars.


Alexandria Mayor Sara Carlson and City Engineer Tim Schoonhoven stopped at the newspaper Thursday to explain the situation.
