Upcoming Alexandria Bike Lane Meetings

A public meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 18 to discuss proposed bike lanes for King Street between Russell Road and Janney's lane in Alexandria.
When: Wednesday, September 18. 7:00 pm
Where: Maury Elementary Cafeteria, 600 Russell Road
The City of Alexandria is proposing to narrow the moving lanes to provide traffic calming and install bicycle lanes in both directions. These will connect to the King Street Metro to the new bicycle lanes installed on Janney’s Lane, as called for in the City’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Mobility Plan, and will require parking removal on that section of King Street.  Do to the removal of parking we expect a lot of opposition.

On Monday, September 23rd, Alexandria’s Traffic and Parking Board will review proposed bike lanes for King Street between West Cedar Street and Janney's Lane.
When: Monday, September 23, 7:30 pm
Where: Council Chambers, City Hall, 301 King Street
The decision on this rests with the Transportation Department, with the advice of the Traffic and Parking Board. Thanks to all who have already contacted the Alexandria City Council. That helps our elected leaders understand the breadth of support for this important proposal.

A poll on whether people want the bike lanes.
