Dear Evans Community,

There have been ongoing problems today with Elevator 1 and Elevator 3. Estimated repair times are not yet fully determined. Please be prepared to wait at the elevator, or take stairs if you are able to do so.

Since Elevator 5 is still under repair, and Elevator 4 is rumored to have just flunked its post-repair safety check, that leaves Elevator 2.
