The possibility of having 2 sets of 3 off line at once is quite scary. Even though ES 411/414 will be in an up position at all times the morning rush will messy with more individuals looking to use the elevators.

Escalator work at Roosevelt Island
Beginning August 25th, two sets of escalators (four in total) will be taken out of service for a month as part of the escalator replacement project.
The escalators are located between the street and lower mezzanine. During this time, the remaining set of escalators will be running in the up direction.
The MTA Elevators and Escalators group will be on call should anything happen to the working escalators during the shutdown.
