Report: Bethesda Metro Elevator Could Open This Week
Metro is awaiting a state inspection before it can re-open the elevator following a much-delayed rehabilitation project, The Washington Examiner reports.
After several delays, the Bethesda Metro station elevator could open late this week, The Washington Examiner reports.
The elevator closed in May for a rehabilitation project that was initially expected to take four months. Metro crews ran into delays acquiring parts for the project, and new state elevator codes also contributed to the delay, according to a Gazette report.
Metro is awaiting a state inspection before it re-opens the elevator, even though the repair work is finished, according to The Examiner.
Next up for the station? A replacement project for the station's oft-bemoaned escalators, expected to launch in early 2014.
