Cecil B. Moore Station Elevator Improvement Project


Beginning Saturday, 1/27, SEPTA will replace equipment and improve elevator controllers, door devices, and other operational features for the Southbound (toward AT&T Station) and Northbound (toward Fern Rock) elevators. The work, taking place between January and March 2018, will take only one elevator out at a time.

Phase 1 begins Saturday, 1/27 with the Southbound Elevator taken out of service. The Northbound (toward Fern Rock) Elevator will remain in service. Please follow the "Alternate Accessibility Plan" during construction:

To Enter the System

  • Take NORTHBOUND (toward Fern Rock) LOCAL Broad Street Line train to North Philadelphia Station

  • Cross over to the Southbound platform for LOCAL service toward AT&T Station

To Exit the System

  • Take SOUTHBOUND (toward AT&T Station) LOCAL Broad Street Line train to Girard Station

  • Cross over to the Northbound (toward Fern Rock) platform for LOCAL service to Cecil B. Moore Station

As an alternate to Broad Street Line, customers can take Route 4 or 16 Buses (board at Cecil B. Moore Avenue and North Broad Street) for southbound service along Broad Street.

The Southbound Elevator is scheduled to return to service on Monday, 2/19 and Phase 2 will begin with the Northbound Elevator being taken out of service. Please look for additional signage with Alternate Accessibility information.

Elevator Status information is available 24/7 by calling 877-737-8248 or online.
