ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

Bird’s eye view of the Montgomery Center proposal (via City of Alexandria)

To be honest, it was a pretty slow week for news in Alexandria.

That’s likely owed, in part, to it being Spring Break this week.

All the same, there was still some big news. The biggest being that Alexandria’s Yellow Line will have its long awaited reopening next month. Alongside that reopening, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has said that despite earlier delays, the Potomac Yard is still scheduled to keep to plans to open in May as well.

The most-read stories this week were:

  1. JUST IN: Bank robbery reported in Carlyle
  2. Delivery driver robbed at gunpoint in West End
  3. Massive Montgomery Center redevelopment heads to City Council this month
  4. Alexandria armed robbery suspect allegedly ordered victim to send money via Cash App
  5. JUST IN: Alexandria’s Yellow Line reopening early next month
  6. No arrest after shots fired outside West End 7-Eleven
  7. Notes: New hospital approved by state for Franconia-Springfield
  8. JUST IN: Severe Thunderstorm Watch issued for Alexandria
  9. No arrest after shots fired outside West End 7-Eleven
  10. Metro: Potomac Yard station still on track to open in May
