KONE began the installation of four new and more durable escalators at the Pentagon City Metro Station in Arlington, Virginia, on August 16, Patch.com reports. Both entrances to the Pentagon City Metro Station will need to be closed at different times during construction, with the east side of South Hayes Street being the first. Crews will tear down and replace the two escalators at each entrance simultaneously so construction can be completed quicker. The project is expected to take nine months. Pentagon City is the sixth station to receive new escalators in connection with Metro’s seven-year, US$179-million escalator replacement project, providing 130 new escalators in total. The project is funded through Metro’s Capital Improvement Program, which receives dedicated funding from Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Later this year, Arlington County will begin work on the installation of an elevator on the west side of South Hayes Street, which will provide access to the Metro and retail shops. The new elevator is scheduled to be finished by 2023.
