New Parking Restrictions in Effect for 100 block of Duke Street and 200 block of S. Lee Street
New parking restrictions are in effect for the 100 block of Duke Street (between Union and Lee Streets) and the 200 block of S. Lee Street (between Prince and Duke Streets). Similar to the restrictions enacted over the summer on the 100 block of Prince Street, these restrictions require any vehicle without a District 1 residential parking permit to pay to park on the block for up to 2 hours.
New signage has been installed noting the requirement to pay, hours and days of restriction, and payment options. Parkers choosing to park on the block can use the City’s pay-by-phone app, Pango, or purchase a parking receipt from a meter on an adjacent block.
These restrictions are allowed through the City’s Residential Pay by Phone pilot program, which was approved by City Council in November 2016. The goal of the pilot program is to provide adequate on-street parking for residents by encouraging non-residential parkers to park in metered or garage spaces by eliminating free two-hour parking on the residential blocks. City staff will evaluate before and after parking conditions on the blocks with these restrictions to determine if this is an effective tool that could be expanded to other areas.
More information about the pilot program can be found at www.alexandriava.gov/Parking under “Overview of Parking Restrictions and Districts.” Interested residents can submit a petition to staff for review and consideration before the Traffic and Parking Board.
