Metro: Escalator Replacement Project at Silver Spring Station Nearly Complete

Metro has announced that the replacement of the escalators at the Silver Spring station is nearly complete.

A social media post from the agency indicated that the final escalator replacement at the station is now underway.

Work began last year on the north entrance between East-West Highway and Second Ave. in downtown Silver Spring, followed by the replacement of the three escalators at the south entrance.

The replacement process, managed by escalator contractor KONE, was originally expected to take approximately eleven months in total. This project is part of Metro’s escalator replacement program, which will replace 130 escalators across 32 stations by the year 2028.
