What a huge milestone that has been years in the making! Hundreds of people turned out yesterday despite the cold, including many elected officials, project and regional partners, representatives from federal, state and regional agencies, and members of the community. We love the collaboration and thanks for kicking of the celebration, Mayor Wilson!

‪A historic day as we broke ground on the Potomac Yard Metro station.‬

‪A transformational project that will shape the economic, mobility and environmental future of our City for generations to come.‬

‪Thanks to Governor of Virginia & The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority and all of our partners.‬

Today at 2pm we break ground on Potomac Yard Metro Station. We're excited to celebrate this milestone with AlexandriaVA.gov, DRPT and Metro Forward. The Authority allocated $70M in regional funding towards this project to impact transit riders, pedestrians, motorists and cyclists alike. Models suggest that 5,000 to 6,000 daily trips will be shifted from automobiles to transit once this station is constructed and about 10,000 to 11,000 boardings daily are expected at the station.

Additionally, the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station project is projected to reduce 22 million person hours of delay by 2040, according to FY2017 NVTA funding program analysis. We look forward to funding more of these multimodal transportation projects impacting not only Alexandria but the region as a whole.

Governor Northam says as part of his proposed budget, he wants to restore $65 million to the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority. Details to come. Just last week, the Authority adopted the NVTA Legislative Program. #1 priority: Restore long term funding to the Authority. The Authority favors statewide revenue as the first source of
funding which helps limit additional burdens on Northern Virginia taxpayers already paying for
extensive multimodal transportation projects in the region. http://ow.ly/w3Ml50xCxyC
