Friendship Heights station problems
Update, 12 p.m.: Metro is reporting that all elevators and escalators at the Friendship Heights Station are working again, except for those undergoing modernization.
Original post: Metro was asking riders at the Friendship Heights Station to use only the western entrance to the underground station Thursday morning after a fire alarm, which turned out to be false. Additionally, all elevators, and the down escalators at the station's western entrance, were not working.
Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said the elevators were shut down as a result of the fire alarm, and that the down escalators were probably also affected. She said that the station remains open and that technicians were working to get the elevators and escalators operational.
