The escalator next to the Regal Riviera will permanently close Wednesday morning.
Crews closed the escalator due to the State Street Garage expansion. The escalator next to it will remain open, and beside it, crews will set up a temporary staircase.
The long-term plan is to replace the old escalator with an elevated walkway, which would connect the garage to the movie theater. This $6.1 million dollar project will add 250 new spaces to the State Street Garage. Crews should finish construction by the spring.
