New Carrollton West Side Entrance Escalator Replacement

Advisory Effective: 6/1/21 - 9/30/21

Beginning June 1, 2021, a major capital project will begin to replace the west side entrance escalator at New Carrollton Station. When complete, a brand new, more reliable escalator will be available. Metro’s contractor, KONE, will install the new escalator as part of an ongoing project to replace 130 escalators across the Metrorail system over the next seven years.

How will this work affect my trip?

During construction, the stairway and elevator located at the west side entrance will remain open for customer use.

How long will the project take?

The replacement of the west entrance escalator is expected to take approximately five months for site preparation, demolition, construction, installation and testing.
