Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) tweeted this morning that the first test train has gone through the station.
“Major milestone in our efforts to complete the work for the new station,” WMATA said in the tweet. “Testing is on schedule [and] we appreciate everyone’s patience as our teams work to get the station completed.”
The opening, originally scheduled for this past spring and then to this fall, was pushed back last month to sometime in 2023 with no more specific date.
The delay also prolonged the period of time when Alexandria will be cut off from the rest of the Metro system to early next month.
