It’s been another busy week in Arlington, as the county looks to the future with several projects in the pipeline.
Some of our most popular stories have been a first look at the revamped Market Common in Clarendon, the County Board’s approval of changes at the “Five Points” intersection in Cherrydale, price increases coming to the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse and the decision to move ahead with the Long Bridge Aquatics Center.
Also this week, a major water main break caused problems for residents and business in South Arlington, and law enforcement and first responders were involved in an exercise to simulate a major response to an act of terrorism.
Looking ahead, it promises to be a scorching weekend, with thermometers set to hit 90 degrees for the first time this year.
Feel free to discuss those or any other topics of local interest in the comments. Have a great weekend!
