Telegraph Road will be closed in both directions between Huntington Avenue and Duke Street this coming weekend Saturday November 17 – Sunday November 18, 2012.
Detour: Motorists heading north should take Huntington Avenue to U.S. Route 1 North to Duke Street. Detour signs will be posted for southbound motorists.
Will this be the last closure of Telegraph Road? Short answer is no.
The Alexandria Fire Department says it found what appears to be a hydrocarbon leak in the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Va. Monday night.
Fire officials have called in hazmat crews to identify and fix the source of the odor.
Officials say no one was in the building given the late hour and federal holiday.
On Wednesday, October 31, all City of Alexandria government offices and facilities, including courts, will be open on time. DASH bus service and the King Street Trolley will operate on a normal schedule.
A Coastal Flood Warning remains in effect through 8 a.m. Wednesday. Flooding is expected to be minor. Current forecasts predict possible flooding in the 100 block of King Street early Thursday morning. No flooding of the City’s streams is expected. As a precaution, sandbags are being distributed until 6 p.m. today, October 30, at Market Square (301 King St). There’s a limit of five bags per vehicle, and residents will be asked to show ID.
The City of Alexandria remains under a state of emergency in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The City received heavy rain and strong wind gusts overnight on October 29.

Residents without power are asked to report outages to Dominion Virginia Power at 866.DOM.HELP (866.366.4357). To report non-emergency issues related to Hurricane Sandy, call the City’s storm hotline, 703.746.HELP (4357). To report a police, fire or medical emergency, call 911.

Using abandoned Hoffman parking lot as a staging area. God bless these guys and gals!
See this link for Dominion Virginia Power’s outage map which will give you an idea when maybe the power will be back on if it does go out. Click on the dots for info on how many people affected, estimated restoration time and the cause of the outage.
Be careful walking near there as it looks like it took out the panel that provides power in the park too.
