The Farragut North and Dupont Circle Metro stations are hot and stuffy, and the only solution may be to dig up more than the length of a football field of Connecticut Avenue NW. NBC4 reported that the chiller system that cools the Metro station is in shambles, and large pipes under the intersection of K Street NW and Connecticut Avenue NW that carry water to cool the Metro stations are rotted out and leaking. The cooling system has been turned off, and plans are in the works to fix it, but construction won't start until "some point before spring," according to NBC4. No timetable or price have been set yet on the plan to fix the chiller system.
