  • 2340 Duke St Alexandria, VA - Eisenhower East

    Last night (Oct 9th - 10th) the hourly freight trains going under the Duke St. tunnel were blarring their horns every .5 seconds for the entire duration of their trip. It would take 15 or so minutes or each to get by. I don't see how the policy makes us any safer. Worst part is the trains come hourly and it is impossible to sleep through. Perhaps some lighting along the track would solve the problem?
    Typically the trains would blow the horn twice, which will wake up people in the near by buildings but it doesn't go on for 15 minutes. I assume it must have been fog or something which drove them to 'lay on the horn'.

  • Fort Williams Pkwy Alexandria, VA - Seminary Hill

    Because of increased traffic cut-throughs - At the intersection of Fort williams Pkwy and Tupelo Place drivers routinely speed and run through the stop sign. WHERE ARE THE POLICE? WHY DOES THE CITY ONLY PUT SPEED SLOWING DEVICES IN SOME NEIGHBORHOODS? HOW ABOUT A LIGHT DEVICE - SOMETHING???

  • 228 S West St Alexandria, VA - King St Metro

    While attempting to cross Duke Street on my bike, I eventually realized that I do not get a green light unless a car pulls up and triggers the sensor. Is it less important for bikes to be able to use the light than cars? Why would the system be set up for only one type of road user?

  • Potomac Ave And Main Line Alexandria, VA - Potomac Yard-Potomac Greens

    I'm not sure what hour of the day the lights need to be solid red, but certainly in the early morning and late evening, the lights do not need to be solid red. I understand traffic is changing - when there are cars coming, I'll be happy to sit at a light. For now, I just keep missing the light to get on Hwy 1 going south. Bummer.

  • Dulany St Alexandria, VA - Eisenhower East

    Cars easily access this area 24 hours a day, while during off hours, pedestrians crossing from the metro stop to Carlyle must cross 3 of the 4 sides of the intersection, then request the light. It can take as long as 6 minutes to accomplish this legally, while the lights continue to focus on getting auto traffic through regardless of whether there is any at all.

  • No merge area Archived
    Interstate 95 & Telegraph Rd Alexandria, VA 22314, USA - Eisenhower Ave

    There is no merge area when entering west I-495 from south Telegraph Road. Area is under construction and using temporary ramps but signs do no warn about total lack of an acceleration lane. Perhaps a full stop sign rather than simple yield until final ramps are complete.

  • 4800 Mark Center Dr Alexandria, VA - Alexandria Wrest

    This building is very irritating, and it's not even done. It's a DOD project to consolidate workers from leased space in the area. It's not suitably served by public transportation. They even want to claim land in a neighboring nature preserve to build a ramp to I-395. As I watched this building go up I was annoyed that worklights burned in the structure 24/7 even when no workers were there. The attached photo was taken on a Sunday. Ironically this is a LEEDS "Silver" project which is supposed to be considerate of life-cycle environmental impact. This project doesn't make security sense by concentrating critical defense personnel in one, easy to find place.
