Metrorail to stay open later than normal for Monday night’s Redskins game

Metro says it will operate its rail system beyond the normal midnight closing time to accommodate riders who attend Monday night’s preseason Washington Redskins game at FedEx Field.

Rail stations normally would close at midnight. But the Morgan Boulevard and Largo Town Center stations, near FedEx, will stay open for later boardings after the game between the Redskins and Cleveland Browns, which starts at 8 p.m.

The last Silver Line train headed to the Wiehle-Reston East station will depart Largo Town Center at 12:11 a.m. and Morgan Boulevard at 12:14 a.m., the transit agency said. It said the last Blue Line train to the Franconia-Springfield station will leave Largo Town Center at 12:24 a.m. and Morgan Boulevard at 12:27 a.m.

During the same time frame, trains also will run in the other direction, from Morgan Boulevard to Largo Town Center, Metro said.

“Station entrances at all other Metro stations will close at their normal times,” the transit authority said, “but riders will be able to exit at all stations” during the post-midnight service.
