Alexandria and Metro officials finally held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new Potomac Yard Metro Station after years of waiting. The station has been long planned to improve access and drive development in the area. According to wtop.com, "With the announcement last year of Amazon-related plans for a Virginia Tech campus near the station, additional pieces of those development plans came together. The station is projected to open in spring 2022. The city and Metro are still working on design plans for one of the entrances that were cut to shave costs." As per wtop.com, "The station is on the Blue and Yellow lines between the Braddock Road and Reagan National Airport stations. The groundbreaking was scheduled after final environmental approvals and permits were approved earlier this fall that officially allow construction to continue into the next phases."
