Pedestrian Access Limit Sought

Washington Redskins fans will once again be barred from walking to FedEx Field along one road to the stadium if a recommendation made by a panel of Prince George's County public officials and community members is ratified. The policy limiting pedestrian access to the football stadium was voided five months ago by a Circuit Court ruling. The panel, known as the "coordinating group," has asserted that pedestrians on Redskins Road are a public safety problem. The group's recommendation now goes to the county's Department of Public Works and Transportation for the final decision on closing the public road to foot traffic.

Weathered tobacco barns, such as this one in Chaptico, have been added to the National Trust for Historic Preservation's list of endangered sites.
