Lee & Kirkwood Flooding

Flooding at Lee & Kirkwood
Flooding at Lee & Kirkwood July 8 2019

The intersection of Lee Hwy (Rt 29) and N Kirkwood St floods frequently so is best avoided during periods of heavy rain. Flooding at Lee & Kirkwood on July 8 disabled several cars. Arlington Police reported 25 water rescue calls county-wide during the morning of July 8.

Unfortunately, there are few alternatives when this intersection is impassable. Probably the best is to go the long way around via Wilson/Clarendon Blvds or N 13th St.

Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down and 2 feet of water can sweep your car away.

As flooding is expected to become more frequent, remember that it is unwise to drive through deep water. Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down and 2 feet of water can sweep your car away.

Avoid parking in low-lying areas when storms are forecast.

Bike Thefts

Recently there have been some bicycle thefts in the
 Clarendon area. Protect your bike from theft. U-locks
 are the most effective locks to use. When leaving your 
bike in a public area always secure the bike to a bike
rack or other immovable object even if just for a 
short time. When at home, secure your bike in
 a safe location such as a locked garage or other inside 
location.

Register your bike with the police

LVCA General Meeting, Apr 11, 8pm

The next General Meeting will feature representatives from the Arlington Police Department to discuss crime trends and answer questions and address concerns that you may have.

We'll also hear a report from the Lee Highway Alliance on the results from the community meeting (charette) held last November to gather input from residents and business owners about our vision for the future of Lee Highway from Rosslyn to the Fairfax County line. Redevelopment pressures for the corridor are growing and this is the effort of 18 civic associations to get ahead of the curve. More info can be found at GreaterGreaterWashington.org.

The meeting takes place at 8pm at the Lyon Village Community House.
