Anyone who’s driven down Commonwealth Avenue between Braddock Road and Monroe Avenue knows its surface has become akin to something lunar.
Alexandria will remedy the pothole populous stretch this spring as part of its early paving schedule for 2014.
The stretch of Commonwealth beginning in the 1000 block and ending at the 1500 block tops the repaving list.
Other stretches include (in order of priority):
- N. Quaker Lane from Janney’s Lane to W. Braddock Road
- S. Quaker Lane from Duke Street to Business Center Drive
- Janney’s Lane from Cloverway Drive to King Street
The locations were identified based on a pavement surface evaluation and rating system conducted by the city in 2013.
The total cost for repaving the four identified areas is estimated at $645,000.
The schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather or utility repair.
