Play associated audio

The idea is to put a station in the Potomac Yard area, which is expected to see several million square feet of mixed-use development in the coming years. The stop would be located between two existing Metrorail stations, the Reagan National Airport and Braddock Road stations on the Blue and Yellow lines.

A group assigned to oversee the aspects of the construction of the station will have all the information on the project including its background, environmental impact, and future planning efforts.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight at Alexandria City Hall.
