ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Metro’s summerlong shutdown of Blue and Yellow Line stations south of Reagan National airport has significantly slowed traffic in Alexandria, Virginia.

Data from 30 traffic sensors across Route 1, Duke Street, King Street and other corridors in the city show average travel times on the road increased about 4% on average when compared to the spring, a new city report finds.

Since summer traffic is often lighter, the actual increase in delays is likely much more than that.
