Photos: Costco Construction Progresses, Set to Open in May

The Costco Wholesale on Route 1 is on track to open in May.

Construction on the Costco Wholesale store on Route 1 is progressing and on track for a May 2013 opening.

SFDC Marketing and Communications Director David Ben told Patch that construction is on track.

"The ground is being allowed to properly settle and the timeline of a May opening is still on track," Ben said. "The building does not take very long at all to build because it is a warehouse."

The store will be located at 7940 Richmond Hwy. in Alexandria.

Price wars, huge traffic jams...this will call for extra popcorn. Party at that little playset across the street !

Price wars are good. I don't think traffic will be AS BAD AS Kings Crossing, because they have a street coming in as a diagonal, too. [Not saying traffic won't be bad, just different!]

There will be no gas station. Traffic will be tough as it is.

If anything, this should improve traffic. Once people realize it takes 45 minutes just to cross the street, people will avoid the area like the plague.

"Once people realize it takes 45 minutes just to cross the street, people will avoid the area like the plague." Ah, the old "It's so crowded no one goes there any more" phenomenon.
