Alexandria, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Several major public works projects were completed under Mr. Cook, who began work with the City of Alexandria in 1963. The replacement of the City's incinerator with a privately operated waste-to-energy plant was an undertaking of national significance. The reconstruction of a major portion of Alexandria's traffic signal system to a computer controlled system and the coordination of the Alexandria portion of the Washington area's METRO system were done under his careful review. Many street widenings, extensions and reconstructions also took place under his guidance. He has also been responsible for approval of all private development
