Waterfront Metro Escalator Repairs


Starting on January 18, WMATA will begin a two-year project to replace the escalators at the Waterfront Metro station. From WMATA:
The project will replace the current entrance escalators, which are more than 20 years old and have exceeded their useful life, with brand new escalators that are more durable and reliable. Metro's contractor, KONE, will install the new escalators one at a time, while keeping two units in service for the duration of the project -- one running up and one running down.
It will take about 35 weeks to fix each of the three escalators and most of the work will be done at night to minimize disruption. Maybe they will finally remove the SEU from the station pylon and entrance while they're at it...
