ALEXANDRIA, VA-The City of Alexandria is giving residents and businesses the opportunity to offer suggestions about how to improve traffic and transportation in the city. A draft of the Alexandria Mobility Plan (AMP) is now online. Feedback can be submitted until April 30 via the form HERE.

Documentation also includes the Executive Summary and an overview presentation.

The AMP is an update of the city’s Transportation Master Plan. Its aim, according to an Alexandria eNews bulletin, is to “ensure ensure that Alexandria residents, businesses and visitors have better access to safe and convenient travel choices as the region grows and technology provides new mobility options.”

The draft includes strategies and policies that: 1) improve travel choices, 2) manage congestion and cut-through traffic better, and 3) reduce and eliminate disparities and inequalities.

All feedback received by the deadline will be presented to the Advisory Committee and considered for inclusion in the final plan.

Created during the pandemic, which significantly altered travel patterns, the AMP accounts for potential changes as a result of telecommuting and adjusted work schedules. With flexibility at its core, the plan will help prepare Alexandria to meet the mobility needs of the future.
