(Updated at 5:18 p.m.) Metro employees briefly closed the Dupont Circle Station’s south entrance after two escalators and the overhead lights inside lost power during rush hour earlier today.

Power was restored and the entrance reopened just before 5:20 p.m.

Conditions were treacherous as riders slowly made their way down the stopped escalator this afternoon. Several Metro employees and one D.C. Police officer were spotted helping riders down the escalator just before 5 p.m.
