ALEXANDRIA, VA . - Old Town Alexandria could soon go car-free. The mayor has proposed making part of King Street pedestrian only.

Alexandria’s historic waterfront is always packed with tourists and locals alike. Now, Mayor Justin Wilson and Councilman John Chapman are aiming to entice even more of them by proposing a “pedestrian plaza” that ties into the newly-expanded waterfront park.

The proposal would shut down the first one or two blocks of King Street on weekends, which would expand opportunities for outdoor dining and live entertainment.
