North Entrance Officially Reopens at Silver Spring Metro Station With Two New Escalators; South Side Escalator Construction to Begin Soon

by MCS Staff

As part of customer improvements at the Silver Spring Station, Metro is replacing the five entrance escalators at the Silver Spring Station with brand-new escalators that are more durable and reliable. Work started at the north entrance between East-West Highway and Second Ave on Tuesday, Sept 6, and after just over four months of construction, reopened on Monday morning, January 16th.

Metrorail service was not impacted and customers were able to access the station via the escalator and elevator at the south entrance closest to the Paul S. Sarbanes Transit Center. Now that construction on the north side escalators has been completed and the entrance has reopened,  work will begin to replace the three south entrance escalators. The entrance will remain open and the new escalators will be installed one at a time. Construction is expected to take approximately 11 months to complete.
