This morning Potomac Avenue quietly opened for traffic. The new road in Potomac Yard connects Route 1 and Monroe Avenue to Crystal Drive in Crystal City via a re-purposed old railroad bridges over Four Mile Run. The Arlandrian took a tour:
|Turning South onto Potomac Avenue in Crystal City.|
|Approaching 33rd Street|
|At the intersection with South Glebe Road.|
|Heading onto the bridge over Four Mile Run into Alexandria with|
the view of car heading north confirms it.
(I swear I heard someone complain about the traffic)
|Looking back north toward Arlington behind the Target.|
|Work has started to connect the grid.|
|At the other end: Potomac Avenue where it connects to |
Route 1 and Monroe Avenue (via Main Line Blvd).
