Despite COVID-19 Contractor Impacts, Potomac Yard Metro Station on Track for Spring 2022 Opening

Alexandria is on schedule to see the Potomac Yard Metro station open in spring 2022, despite letters sent to the city from the contractor that work has been impacted by COVID-19.

“The contractor does continue to submit letters stating that there have been some impacts due to COVID-19,” Daphne Kott, the city’s Design Division Chief, reported to City Council on Tuesday night. “They have not made any formal requests for any time extensions, but again these are letters with potential delays and we’re just trying to be transparent that these are occurring.”

Contractors will be erecting the pedestrian bridge span over the WMATA tracks over the President’s Day weekend, during which time Metro access between the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport station and Braddock Road station will be shut down on the blue and yellow lines from Friday, Feb. 12 until Tuesday Feb. 16.

“It’s just been really great to see, even with the weather in the middle of pandemic, that we’ve still been able to move along and stay on schedule,” Councilman Canek Aguirre said. “Knock on wood, and we’re targeting spring 2022.”
