Route 13 Track Renewal Project to Begin in Yeadon Borough

May 30, 2023

SEPTA is beginning a trolley track renewal project to improve track infrastructure on Trolley Route 13 along Chester Avenue between Bullock Avenue and 65th Street in Yeadon. 

Construction is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, May 30, 2023 and run through July 30, 2023. 

During this time - Route 13 will be detoured and shuttle buses substituted for the duration of the project. 

Check for posted signs.

Additionally - Chester Avenue and Church Lane at the intersection will be detoured for the duration of the project to facilitate construction.

The project will be broken into three phases - each with its own detour. Posted traffic detours will be posted and maintained for the duration of the track renewal project.

Benefits Include:

  • Reduced vibrations – increased continuity with steel tie construction and increased bonding

  • Smoother ride for trolleys and vehicular traffic – new and improved track components

  • New Street Surface – new concrete/asphalt paving and line painting

SEPTA greatly appreciates your patience and understanding while this important construction project is completed.
