ARLnow Weekend Discussion

The weekend is here but the week’s biggest local excitement is yet to happen.

The implosion of the former Rosslyn Holiday Inn is set for 8 a.m. on Sunday. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to take a look at the planned road closures.

The public is being discouraged from watching in person, but ARLnow staff photographer Jay Westcott will be on the scene. You’ll be able to see his photos afterward and, if all goes well, we will be livestreaming the implosion on our Facebook page.

Here are the most-read Arlington articles of the past five days:
