The biggest news out of Alexandria this week is undoubtedly the opening of the new Potomac Yard Metro station.

The station opened today after years of planning and over a year of delays. But the opening was a grand celebration, with workers who built the structure, elected officials who lobbied for funding, and staffers who planned it mingling and taking a ride to King Street.

But the opening hasn’t cracked ALXnow’s top ten most read for this week yet.
