Friendship Heights Metro escalator update (Photos)
While much attention has been taken up by the disastrous start for the new escalator at the Bethesda Metro station (multiple shutdowns by the multi-million dollar, brand new escalator), another escalator project at the Friendship Heights Metro station continues to lag behind schedule.
