Exchange Place PATH escalator repair to start in 2018

JERSEY CITY — Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said it will be two more years before escalators at the Exchange Place PATH station will be repaired.
They were damaged as a result of water surge during Superstorm Sandy in October, 2012.
Three of the elevators running from the street down to the platform apparently have mechanical problems, and squeak when they move. The Port Authority said the repair will cost about $62 million and work sill not begin until early in 2018 more than five years after the storm.
There was an injury reported from someone jumping off them after the escalators malfunctioned.
