Via WJLA, some local Alexandria, Virginia hotels are not warning potential customers about the upcoming Metro summer shutdown of six stations. The city is bracing for the negative economic impact of the summer shutdown.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, in 16 days, Metro is temporarily halting rail service in Alexandria during the summer shutdown past Labor Day. Buses will replace trains on the Blue and Yellow lines south of Reagan National Airport as six stations south of the airport will be closed – Braddock Road, King St-Old Town, Eisenhower Ave, Huntington, Van Dorn Street and Franconia-Springfield.
One would think the City would have staff out and about in the community to get the word out and to help businesses cope with the looming shutdown. Have you heard of the City holding a forum about this?
