Thanks to a reader for sending this tweet of a – if you don’t laugh you’ll cry – photo of an out of service Dupont South metro escalator which reopened over the weekend after being closed for repairs for 8 months.
Update from WMATA:
“I just wanted to mention that there is nothing wrong with the new escalators. There was an active fire alarm in the station. That, by design, causes the escalators to turn off. Techs resetting now. (There was no fire.) I should mention that the system stops the down escalators — any escalator already ascending continues to operate. This is a safety feature that is designed to maximize egress in the event of an emergency. ”
