Metro B-Roll of Dupont Circle escalator removal

Early Wednesday morning, following weeks of prep work to install a gantry system, crews began the removal of the center escalator at Dupont Circle's south entrance.  The center escalator is the first unit to be removed.  Each unit will be extracted in seven large pieces -- with each piece traveling on three separate cranes on its journey off the work site.

The project remains on schedule.
