Montgomery Street Rehabilitation and Reconstruction
Between North Pitt and North Saint Asaph Streets

If you are driving from Watergate to any point south or west, it is likely that you will begin your journey on Montgomery Street and think that you are on a roller coaster because the roadway surface is so warped and buckled.  Well, relief is on the way.  The city has announced plans to rebuild the one-block section of Montgomery Street between North Pitt and North St. Asaph Streets. 

According to the Alexandria Department of Project Implementation, the work will include full-width reconstruction of the roadway, pavement, curbs and gutters.  In addition, collapsed underground water pipes will be replaced and new pavement markings will be laid down.  A new brick sidewalk, tree wells and trees will also be installed along the south side of the street.

This stretch of Montgomery Street forms the southern edge of the planned 500 First Street development project at the former Giant/ABC Store site, and city officials have opted to use Edens' contractors, at the city's expense, to complete the Montgomery Street reconstruction at the same that the 500 First Street project is underway to save on costs.  At the end of September 2017, the city sent out notices that it planned to start this project on October 2, 2017 and that it would continue for about one year during which time this stretch of Montgomery Street will be closed to all traffic.

Meanwhile, the city is holding public hearings to decide whether to restore Montgomery Street as a two-way thoroughfare.
