SEPTA Expands Weekend Maintenance & Cleaning Blitz

SEPTA Expands Weekend Maintenance & Cleaning Blitz

Initiative Moves to Four New Stations During June

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 at the North Philadelphia Station on the Broad Street Line (BSL), then move to 46th Street, Tioga and 8th Street Stations on the Market-Frankford Line (MFL). For each blitz, stations will close at 8 pm. Friday through Sunday and reopen at 5 am 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. Below are the scheduled days for work at each station:

  • North Philadelphia Station (BSL): June 4, 5, 6 (riders should use Allegheny or Susquehanna-Dauphin Stations for access to the Broad Street Line.)
  • 46th Street Station (MFL): June 11, 12, 13
  • Tioga Station (MFL): June 18, 19, 20
  • 8th Street Station (MFL): June 25, 26, 27

Previous weekend blitzes have been carried out at the 13th Street Station on the Market-Frankford Line and the 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. For trip-planning tools and schedules, please visit SEPTA’s website or download the Official SEPTA App from the Apple Store or Google Play.

Please note: SEPTA plans to reopen stations with full access to elevators each morning following the closures. Customers will be notified as soon as possible if there are any changes that require extended elevator outages.
