North Entrance of Silver Spring Station to Reopen Monday

Metro is set to reopen the north entrance of the Silver Spring station with brand-new escalators on Monday, Jan. 16, the agency announced on Twitter.

The entrance was closed in early September to facilitate the replacement of both escalators simultaneously.

Now that installation is complete, the north entrance will reopen, and work will begin to replace the three escalators at the south entrance. The entrance will remain open while the new escalators are installed one at a time. The construction process, completed by Metro’s contractor KONE, is expected to take approximately 11 months in total.

This project is part of Metro’s escalator replacement program, which will replace 130 escalators by the year 2028 across 32 stations.
