Foggy Bottom escalators out
The escalators of the week are at Foggy Bottom Station on the Blue and Orange lines. All three are out of service on Tuesday morning, and that's likely to mean long lines of people on the mezzanine waiting to get out.
Foggy Bottom, the station for George Washington University and hospital, federal offices and many businesses as well as the monuments on the west side of the National Mall, has only one exit. When its bank of three escalators is out, exiting passengers must use one, or sometimes two as stairs. For some passengers, the escalator wait is as long as the train ride.
According to Metro's lengthy list of out of service escalators,
one at Foggy Bottom is scheduled to be fixed by March 25. Another is scheduled to be running by Friday.
There's no date yet for repair of the third. [10 a.m. update: This one also is now scheduled to be back in service by Friday.]
