More Federal Buildings Open as 'Rest Stops' on Inauguration Day

Federal officials today announced that several government buildings along the inaugural parade route will remain open to the public on Tuesday, providing warmth and restrooms.

Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) said the Old Post Office Pavilion (at 12th and Pennsylvania) will open at 5 a.m. and close at 7 p.m., the Ronald Reagan Building (13th and Pennsylvania Ave NW) will be open for 24 hours, and both the Federal Aviation Administration buildings 10A and 10b (8th and Independence Ave SW) and the Ford House Office Building (3rd and D St SW) will be open for regular business hours.

Norton also said Metro will remain open until 2 a.m. Monday night under an agreement she crafted with Metro General Manager John Catoe, who had previously said the rail system would closed at midnight on the eve of the inaugural. (Metro will run trains from 4 a.m. to 2 a.m. Tuesday.)
