Wheaton station has reopened

By Martin Weil

Update, 6:30 p.m.: The station has reopened.

Original post: The Wheaton station on Metro's Red Line was closed temporarily Saturday evening after escalators and elevators went out of service, Metro said.

Metro said trains were passing through the station but not stopping there. Shuttle service was to be provided.

Metro said mechanical problems caused the shutdown. Details were not available immediately.

What's w/ metro and the flippin' escalators? Half of them are always busted. If they can't get the escalators right, that doesn't give you a lot of faith in the trains.
