Sneak peek at new Bethesda Metro escalator (Photos)

The new escalator at the Bethesda Metro station is gleaming, and has more modern LED lighting than the one it is replacing. One of 3 surface-to-mezzanine escalators in the station that rank as the second-longest in the Western Hemisphere, it is the first of the 3 to be installed. 

The complete replacement of all 3 is scheduled to conclude in September 2016. KONE is the contractor for the project.

Riders' biggest concern - will they actually work on a daily basis?

Better work since the council is talking about deferring payments for the south metro entrance thanks to Hogan's infrastructure cuts.
