Take Metro to MGM? Maybe. WMATA to study a Wilson Bridge extension.

WBJ on Metro coming to National Harbor

When the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge opened in 2006, many anticipated — or hoped — Metro would one day find its way across its span. Some 13 years after the first Toyota Corolla crossed, however, there’s been little movement.

But now the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority is planning a study to figure out the logistics of moving its trains between Alexandria and National Harbor using the 12-lane bridge.

A Metro connection to National Harbor would benefit more than 13,000 area employees and thousands of Prince George’s County residents, not to mention the nearly 12 million guests that visit National Harbor each year, said Jon Peterson, CEO of Peterson Cos.
