ALEXANDRIA, VA. - The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) and the City of Alexandria today announced that Metro selected Potomac Yard Constructors as the prime construction contractor for the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station. The project is a joint venture of Halmar International and Schiavone Construction Co., well-established subsidiaries of global construction companies. The $213.7 million construction contract is the most recent milestone in the effort to bring a new transit station to Alexandria.

“We look forward to the construction of the Potomac Yard Metro Station, an exciting project that will provide jobs and expand transit options for the fastest-growing part of the Alexandria community,” said Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld. “Once complete, the station and surrounding development will create a thriving community, connected by transit, where people can enjoy seamless access to jobs, education, stores, restaurants and entertainment options – both on site and throughout the region.”

“For more than 40 years, our community has explored and worked towards the possibility of adding a Metro station in Potomac Yard,” said City Manager Mark B. Jinks. “The selection of a contractor brings us one major step closer to making this long-standing goal a reality. The new station will improve neighborhood walkability and transit options while reducing traffic congestion. We look forward to working with the community in the coming months to finalize the details of the station design.”
