Foggy Bottom Platform Escalator Fail

So you know how the Foggy Bottom Station escalators are actually a two-layered system of bottlenecks? Today the platform-to-mezzanine bottleneck was made worse by one of the two up escalators being blocked off (at rush hour with no work being done on it at the time, natch) so that hordes of work-bound Metro riders had to cram on to one single escalator. Good thing there wasn’t a fire. Thanks, Metro!
I’ve seen a similar seen at L’Enfant Plaza, although we have 3 escalators going from the lower level platform to the upper level platform. If one is down , their is a big crowed getting off the train trying to go up the working one in the middle
