Wilson Boulevard Repaving in Rosslyn

by ARLnow.com May 18, 2011 at 3:20 pm 1,792 7 Comments

A bumpy stretch of Wilson Boulevard is being repaved this week.

The Rosslyn stretch of Wilson Boulevard from N. Arlington Ridge Road to N. Oak Street is in the process of being repaved. Part of the repaving east of N. Lynn Street has already been completed. Much of the rest of the road has been milled, awaiting repaving.

The milled surface will make for rough driving until it can be covered with blacktop. The repaving is being done as part of Arlington’s summer street repair program, which seeks to repair “old, substandard streets.” N. Arlington Ridge Road is also being repaved as part of the program.

    Someone please warn Justine Whelan from Patch! We don’t want this to make her late to her next interview!

      All right, I’m as snarky as anybody you’ll find around here, and even I’m starting to get weirded out by this.

        You obviously weren’t around for Smoker Steve.

    I’m pretty sure the substandard pavement on Wilson and on Arlington Ridge is the reason Artisphere attendance has been so diappointing.

    I’m sure all the utility companies are taking note and are readying plans to start tearing up this new pavement.

    Its unbelievable that they have not included quite a few other roads in the repaving or slurry mix plan for 2011. Certain areas of Military Road, North Old Glebe Road, Lee Highway, and Wilson Blvd just to name a few.

    How nice for Rosslyn!! I used to drive that stretch every morning for four years.

    While I certainly can appreciate the shout out, I’m wondering what this could possibly have to do with me? I’m now comfortably located in DC, but thanks for the concern 😉

    xoxo Justine
