The city installed hundreds of flags that say Old Town. Most of them were destroyed and damaged. The city says all of them were removed because they could not afford the upkeep, but that's not true. The tattered and torn flags (and the damaged little flag poles) continue to flutter forlorn from 1300-1500 King Street. It's been this way for years and there's been no effort from the city to bring them down (or repair them).
Pedestrian crosswalk button on NE side of intersection looks to be missing. There is a hole where the button should be. This intersection is a key intersection for commuting bicyclist using the Eisenhower Connector.
What ever happened to pass left stay right ? or right on red only when no traffic is coming from your left on either lane ? . Blocking Cars blocking intersections. People are flaunting the law because they know no officer will pull them over . Why is this acceptable ?
King Street At S. Chesterfield Rd. Fairfax, VA - Claremont
For at least 3 weeks there has been an uncovered manhole at the intersection of King St. and S. Chesterfield Rd. with nothing but a few traffic cones and a "caution easel"-type thing. The manhole opening is rather large.
This is directly opposite the Alexandria Health Dept. I drive this road every morning. The pothole cluster in this block is getting much more serious, one hole particularly large was impeding traffic this morning as cars and trucks steered around it into the right lane. All of the potholes between Park Center Drive and Beauregard need to be patched, this is the worst one, needs to be done ASAP.
