The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) late last week wrapped up a major capital project to replace six escalators at the Woodley Park Station in Washington, D.C.As part of the project, crews replaced the three longest escalators in the District of Columbia, WMATA officials said in a press release.WMATA contractor KONE replaced the escalators two at a time. The work included site preparation, demolition and removal of the old escalators, installation of gantries and cranes, and testing and tuning. The project took more than two years to complete. The escalators were more than 30 years old and beyond their useful life, said WMATA General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Paul Wiedefeld."[WMATA's] infrastructure is aging and this is another example of the kind of investment that is needed across the system to provide customers with good, safe and reliable service," he said.Yesterday, WMATA began a new project to replace five entrance escalators at the Cleveland Park Station.Since 2011, the agency has replaced 75 escalators and rehabilitated more than 150.
