SEPTA Expands Weekend Maintenance & Cleaning Blitz

June 3, 2021

Following several successful station cleaning and maintenance blitzes in recent months, SEPTA will expand the initiative to four additional locations during each weekend in June.

Work will start this weekend [June 4-6] at the North Philadelphia Station on the Broad Street Line (BSL), then move to 46th Street [June 11-13], Tioga [June 18-20] and 8th Street [June 25-27] on the Market-Frankford Line (MFL).

For each blitz, stations will close at 8pm on Friday through Sunday and reopen at 5am the following day.

These early closures give crews a full eight hours between closing and the morning reopening to carry out work tasks.

Efforts will focus on maintenance, including work on elevators, as well as painting, power washing, and installing enhanced lighting and new signage.

Previous weekend blitzes have been carried out at 13th Street Station on the Market-Frankford Line and Snyder Station on the Broad Street Line.

This initiative grew out of more expansive infrastructure, maintenance and cleaning efforts that started earlier this year on the Market-Frankford Line at the Somerset and Allegheny Stations.

During the closures, customers can find alternate service at neighboring stations on the Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines or on nearby bus routes.
