Problems Persist with Foggy Bottom Metro Escalators

“Dear PoPville,

The attached photo is the scene at Foggy Bottom metro this morning. With not a single escalator working, people were exiting trains and packing into the station with nowhere to go. Between the elderly and the handicapped, the elevator line was long. If there was an emergency, fire or otherwise, there is no doubt many lives would have been lost. Probably including mine (I’m six months pregnant and pretty slow these days.)

We’ve been dealing with these escalator issues for too long. I think it’s time for DC to press authorities to get this situation under control; it’s just unacceptable. This is our nation’s capital, isn’t it?”
