Alert

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Alexandria area for Thursday, March 5, from midnight to 9 p.m. A snow emergency has been declared for the City of Alexandria, with enforcement of snow emergency routes to begin at 7 a.m. on Thursday, March 5. Significant accumulation of ice and snow may result in a Level 2 storm, which means that travel could be dangerous and some residential roads may not be clear until later in the week. Because the storm is expected to begin with rain, pre-treating streets with salt brine will not be effective. This type of precipitation often results in power outages. The City urges all residents and businesses to be prepared on an ongoing basis for the possibility that it may not be safe to travel for three or more days, and that power may be out during this period.

More marked bike paths on the streets would encourage Alexandria residents to get out and get in shape as well as help the environment. This can't be an expensive project-the City just needs to paint the delineation on the pavement. Otherwise, we are afraid to bike on the street because some drivers are reckless, and it is also prohibited from riding on the sidewalks. This is one little thing that could have a great impact on the life of the City's residents and the environment at the same time.
