Escalator Problems at Rosslyn Metro Station

The Rosslyn Metro station’s long main escalators and elevators were simultaneously out of service for a period of time this morning, forcing commuters to get some unexpectedly rigorous exercise in order to enter or exit the station, according to TBD.

TBD reported that the escalator outage lasted about an hour.

According to the Washington Post, Metro is planning to hire an outside contractor to help with preventative escalator and elevator maintenance at Orange Line stations in Virginia. One in six escalators are under repair systemwide.
