Following several successful station cleaning and maintenance blitzes in recent months, SEPTA will expand the initiative through August 2021 to additional locations on the Broad Street & Market-Frankford Lines.
Work will start this weekend [July 9-11] at Huntingdon Station on the Market-Frankford Line (MSL), then move to:
Lombard-South Station (BSL) on July 16, 17 & 18
11th Street Station (MFL) on July 30, 31 & August 1
Erie Station (BSL) on August 6, 7 & 8
Erie-Torresdale Station (MFL) on August 13, 14 & 15
Ellsworth-Federal Station (BSL) on August 20, 21 & 22
Church Street Station (MFL) on August 27, 28 & 29
For each blitz, stations will close at 8pm on Friday through Sunday and reopen at 5am the following day. The elevators will be out of service.
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 and here.
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.
