Potomac Avenue is open!

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).
