About the Project

The second elevator on the west side of South Hayes Street, near the existing west side escalator, will improve access for patrons making transit connections and for Pentagon City retail customers and tourists.

In 2010 the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) completed, at Arlington’s request, a Feasibility Study of adding an elevator at the Pentagon City Metrorail Station, in anticipation of streetscape enhancements planned in the vicinity.

In February 2021, the County Board approved a contract to W.M. Schlosser Company, Inc. for the construction of the Pentagon City Metro Station second elevator. Construction started in September 2021, with completion anticipated in 2024.
