Proposed Potomac Yard Metro

Proposed Potomac Yard Metro

City leaders in Alexandria have known since last July that the latest plans for the new Potomac Yard Metro stop eliminated the southern entrance, but those changes were only made public recently, sparking anger among residents and businesses who say a number of projects hinged on proximity to Metro.

The city says a non-disclosure agreement prevented it from sharing the information. We discuss the issues.
