After a much-delayed rehabilitation project, the Bethesda Metro station elevator has re-opened to transit commuters.
The elevator closed in May for a rehabilitation project that was initially expected to take four months. Problems acquiring parts for the project contributed to the delay, Bethesda Now reported.
The elevator was functioning Thursday morning. Bethesda blogger Robert Dyer, who first reported the news of the re-opening, posted photos of the elevator operating on Wednesday evening.
The opening of the elevator came sooner than Metro's latest predicition of Friday.
