Traffic. At the last meeting, various concerns about traffic were noted.  The City has informed us that the long-pending King/Callahan/Russell project is expected to commence in the summer, with community outreach first. See https://www.alexandriava.gov/localmotion/info/default.aspx?id=77933 for background. Additionally, a traffic study currently is being conducted for Central Alexandria (including King Street bordering Rosemont); the next meeting on the study will be held on January 24. See https://www.alexandriava.gov/tes/info/default.aspx?id=92722 for more details. Also, it is always helpful to log issues with the City via its Call-Click-Connect service.
