Repair Work Continues on Escalators at Tysons Corner Center

Shoppers at Tysons Corner Center may want to plan to take the mall’s elevators while several escalators are out of order.

Tysons Reporter walked around the mall yesterday (Thursday) and spotted six escalators closed off.

The most extensive escalator work Tysons Reported spotted was at Macy’s. The department store has multiple escalators closed. Enough escalators are open for shoppers to navigate the store’s multiple levels without needing to take an elevator.

The escalator inside Bloomingdale’s going from the first to second levels is closed, which means that shoppers trying to get up to the second level have to take the store’s elevator.

An employee said that the escalator has been broken for a “long, long time,” but should hopefully be working again soon once a required part comes in to finish the repairs.

Elsewhere in the mall, the escalator on the first level by the food court that goes up to the second level has an “Out of Order” sign.

Next to Victoria’s Secret and the exit on the second level to The Plaza, both escalators connecting the first and second levels are out of order.

Tysons Reporter reached out to the mall to find out how long the escalators have been out and what’s being done to fix them, but has not heard back.
