MGM Experiencing Capacity Conditions

We received the following statement from the MGM National Harbor Resort and Casino at approximately 3:30 this afternoon:

Due to an overwhelming response after our successful Thursday grand opening, the MGM National Harbor casino floor again reached capacity during the day on Friday. We first reached capacity just 45 minutes after opening our doors at 10:30 p.m. 

Guests with hotel and dinner reservations are encouraged to arrive early and allow time for heavy, potentially crowded roadway conditions. Others without reservations for tonight or this weekend are encouraged to consider making plans to visit the new resort another time, after grand opening weekend. 

The National Harbor Traffic Command Center continues to monitor and make adjustments for increased traffic flows in the area. Under the supervision of the PGPD, the Center successfully managed grand opening night traffic by making adjustments to key access points.
