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.
