Congress Heights south entrance temporarily closed due to escalator repair, beginning August 10

Advisory Effective: 8/10/20 - 8/25/20

Beginning August 10, 2020, for approximately two weeks, the south entrance escalators at Congress Heights Metrorail Station will undergo a major repair. 

Due to the complexity of the work and heavy equipment involved, the south entrance will be temporarily closed during construction. The repair requires the contractor to set up specialized rigging, that will hoist out parts of the escalator, weighing thousands of pounds.

Train service will not be impacted by construction and customers will still be able to access the station using the north entrance escalators and elevator.
