Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) has secured $1.25 million in funding for a planned transit way that will connect Crystal City and Potomac Yard. The funding comes from the Transportation appropriations bill that passed the House on Thursday.
The five-mile-long Crystal City/Potomac Yard transit way is expected to run from Pentagon City to Alexandria’s Braddock Road Station, with most of the stops concentrated in Crystal City and Potomac Yard.
The project will create a dedicated bus route with stops throughout Crystal City. Eventually, a street car line may be installed in the transit way.
