SEPTA's Center City Concourse Program makes significant upgrades to the underground pedestrian tunnel network that connects major transit stations beneath Center City. This 500,000+ square foot space spans from JFK Boulevard to Spruce Street and from 8th Street to 18th Street. The concourse provides access to many businesses, offices, historical points of interest, two PATCO stations for connecting service to South Jersey, and access to SEPTA Regional Rail, Market Frankford, Trolleys, and Broad Street Lines.
The first phase of the Center City Concourse Program began in 2015; this ongoing project will be completed in 2020. Preliminary phases included the replacement of emergency call boxes and upgrades to stairs and lighting fixtures.
During current and future phases, contractors will make structural repairs, remediate leaks, replace lighting fixtures, improve security, and architectural enhancements. The elevator at 8th and Market Sts. will be upgraded and the escalators at 8th Street and 15th Street Stations will be replaced.
Not to mention, the art!
And the colors!
