The City of Alexandria is in the process of deciding about possible changes to the roadway of Seminary Road as part of the city’s Complete Street program. An online survey presenting possible alternatives regarding lane reductions for car travel was completed on April 10 th . You can read about the city’s alternatives at the website of the Transportation and Environmental Services : http://www.alexandriava.gov/103393. The City will hold a public meeting in May to present their decision. The Traffic and Parking Board will then consider the decision in June. The road will be repaved in September.
Seminary Hill Association also conducted a poll for our members regarding the city alternatives, and included an alternative proposed by the Seminary Hill Transportation Committee. The results of this membership poll heavily favored maintaining the 2 car travel lanes in each direction, while incorporating important safety measures to protect the safety of both pedestrians and drivers. On April 11 th , the board of Seminary Hill Association passed a resolution 11-2 in favor of our alternative. Representatives from Seminary Hill are meeting with city staff to advocate for the plan contained in our Resolution. You can read the full text of this Resolution here on the home page of our website. We will inform you of the date for the May public meeting as soon as it is announced by the City.
