Wheaton Metro escalators back up

Mark Berman

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:

The entrance escalators are no longer out at the Wheaton station, according to Metro's Web site.

6:45 A.M. UPDATE:

The Blue Line delays have been lifted, according to Metro.

6:25 A.M. UPDATE:

And now there's a problem on the Red Line: All entrance escalators are out of service at the Wheaton station. Shuttle bus service and the station remains available.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE:
The unscheduled track maintenance at Braddock Road has been cleared, but delays continue in both directions on the Blue Line.

5:55 A.M. UPDATE:
NBC4 is now reporting that while the Pentagon station was temporarily closed earlier this morning, it is now reopened. However, the Pentagon south parking lot is closed off due to the earlier police activity, they report, so if you're driving there plan on parking somewhere else.


Trains on the Blue Line are sharing the same track between Braddock Road and Van Dorn Street stations due to unscheduled track maintenance. Expect delays in both directions.

Additionally, NBC4 is reporting police activity at the Pentagon station, which could cause potential delays at that Metro stop as well.

David Lacosse, this is the guy in charge of the escalators in Metro. Please try to contact WMATA officials and demand he is fired. He is an incompetent malcontent, and how he still has a job is beyond me.
