Work to tie-in the station and new tracks with the rest of the Metrorail system concluded on Saturday, Nov. 5, and trains are now passing through the station without stopping. 

The station will provide access to regional transportation systems for residents in the northeast area of Alexandria. It is expected to generate billions of dollars in new private sector investment over the long term and eventually support 26,000 new jobs and 13,000 new residents.
