Lower Russell Road Traffic Committee Operational: The NRCA Traffic Committee has worked with neighbors along Russell Road to form an independent committee to assist with a program for slowing traffic along lower Russell Road. This committee is working with Alexandria's "Complete Streets Program" coordinator Hillary Poole and Vice-Mayor Allison Silberberg to engage the neighborhood in support of the traffic control program. We're aware that traffic law enforcement has already increased and specific permanent options are planned. Anyone interested in this committee can contact the NRCA Traffic Committee Chairs, Bruce Snapp or Chuck Kent for further information.
