Metro to stay open for Redskins

Metrorail will operate for an additional hour on Sunday night to accommodate fans attending the Washington Redskins game at FedEx Field.

The Redskins will play the Indianapolis Colts in a game that is scheduled for kickoff at 8:20 p.m. and will be aired on NBC. Metro said the Redskins have paid to keep the system open an extra hour, which means the rail lines will close at 1 a.m. instead of midnight. Trains will be available to transport passengers if the games goes into overtime, Metro said.

According to Metro officials, the last Blue Line train headed toward Franconia-Springfield will leave Largo Town Center at 12:24 a.m. and the Morgan Boulevard Station at 12:27 a.m.

Metro said there are 635 parking spaces at Morgan Boulevard and 2,200 at Largo Town Center for fans who want to park at one of those stations. The cost is $25 on exit and must be made via a SmarTrip electronic fare card. Expect the spaces to go quickly: The parking begins three hours before kickoff, Metro said.
