One year of lane closures in Potomac Yard starts today

(Updated 10:20 a.m.) Starting today, much of Potomac Avenue where it runs through the Potomac Yard neighborhood will be cut down from four lanes to two for over a year as construction continues on the Potomac Yard Metro Station.

The closures will run from E. Glebe Road, near the National Industries for the Blind, up to the city border with Arlington County.

“The reduction in travel lanes will assist and allow for a safe separation for the public from the active construction activities that will be within the roadway as associated with the North Potomac Yards Project,” the city said in a press release.

The lanes closures are scheduled to run from today to Sept. 2, 2022, several months after the station itself is scheduled to open.

The release notes that construction will begin in the northbound travel lanes, then construction activities will be relocated to the southbound travel lanes. Throughout construction, bus stops will remain open and accessible, and the closures will not affect the Potomac Yard Trail.
