ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

While it’s been a busy week in Alexandria, what’s likely the biggest story of the week dropped this afternoon as WMATA announced that the Potomac Yard Metro station has been delayed yet again.

The time, the station’s opening has been pushed back to sometime in 2023, with the shutdown of Alexandria Metro stations extended into November.

This does somewhat explain why the Potomac Yard Metro station was listed as a “future station” with a different icon on the new Metro map compared to the Silver Line stations.

In brighter news, Alexandria is getting an early screening of the new Black Panther movie in November, hopefully just after the Metro shutdown is lifted.
