SEPTA will begin a month-long project to enhance Regional Rail infrastructure as part of the Fox Chase Improvement Program. These upgrades along the Fox Chase Line will improve service reliability, on-time performance, and provide a more comfortable ride.
The work is scheduled to take place from July 5, 2022 through July 29, 2022 and will require major service adjustments that will impact customers who use the Fox Chase Line.
During this time, shuttle buses will replace all trains between Fox Chase and Wayne Junction stations.
Train service will be available between Wayne Junction Station and Center City.
Upcoming work highlights include:
• Installing catenary structure
• Clearing vegetation
• Surfacing track
• Replacing wood ties
• Waterproofing an under-grade bridge
In addition, crews will start preparation work for upcoming enhancements to the Lawndale Station.
Parking at Regional Rail stations will continue to be free through December 2022. Daily parking rates will apply for the Fox Chase parking facility, which is operated by the Philadelphia Parking Authority.
The sales offices at Fox Chase, Cheltenham, and Wayne Junction stations will be open normal weekday hours. For more details, including timetables, shuttle bus stop locations, and suggested alternate routes, please visit: septa.org/foxchaseimprovement.
We thank our customers for their cooperation and greatly appreciate their patience as we complete this project.
