Arena Complicates Route 1 Plan — “When Virginia officials managed to woo Amazon to open its second headquarters in Arlington, they sweetened the deal with a big transportation promise: They would push to lower an elevated highway — a six-lane, gridlocked eyesore that cuts the area in two — and add stoplights and sidewalks… Yet, as Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) tries to secure another billion-dollar deal just two miles down the road in Alexandria — a new arena for the Washington Wizards and the Washington Capitals — that expected makeover now presents a major speed bump.” [Washington Post]

Robbery in Crystal City — “A man was taken to the hospital after he was reportedly assaulted and robbed by three other men in the Crystal City area early Saturday morning, according to the Arlington County Police Department (ACPD). Police said three unknown men in dark clothing approached the male victim at around 1:12 a.m. as he exited a business along the 300 block of 23rd Street South.” [WJLA]

Another Gun Caught at DCA — “A Fredericksburg woman was prevented from carrying a loaded handgun onto a flight leaving Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on Friday morning. Transportation Security Administration officers were alerted to the firearm, after the X-Ray Unit at an airport security checkpoint detected the firearm among the woman’s carry-on items.” [Patch]

Capital One Bank Branch Closing — “Capital One Financial Corp. plans to close about a dozen more bank branches across the country, including a handful in Greater Washington.” Among them: 2100-F Crystal Drive in Crystal City. [Washington Business Journal]

Rosslyn Firm Raises AI Fund — “Arlington private equity firm Washington Harbour Partners LP has raised more than $20.2 million across two funds focused on making investments relating to artificial intelligence. According to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Washington Harbour, located at 1201 Wilson Blvd. in Rosslyn, raised $17.61 million for its Washington Harbour AI Pilot LLC fund.” [DC Inno]

It’s Monday — Expect rain to begin around 4pm, with a cloudy high of 50°F and calm winds turning east at 6 mph in the afternoon. There’s a 70% chance of precipitation, with less than a tenth of an inch possible. Monday night’s rain will continue, with a low reaching 40°F, east winds at 6-13 mph and gusts up to 21 mph. Precipitation is certain, accumulating between half an inch and three-quarters of an inch. []
