Following several successful station cleaning blitzes in recent months, SEPTA will continue the initiative this weekend (July 16, 17, 18) at the Lombard-South Station on the Broad Street Line.
Lombard-South Station will close at 8 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and reopen everyday at 5 a.m. Efforts will focus on deep cleaning, including power washing and the removal of litter, debris and graffiti. To access the Broad Street Line during the nighttime closures, customers who normally use Lombard-South can go to the Walnut-Locust or Ellsworth-Federal Stations.
SEPTA will continue with the weekend cleanings through the summer. Following the Lombard-South this weekend, crews will move to the Erie Station (Market-Frankford Line) on August 6, 7, 8 and Ellsworth-Federal Station (Broad Street Line) August 20, 21 and 22.
SEPTA has been doing these station blitzes on the Market-Frankford and Broad Street Lines over the last several months. In addition to Lombard-South Station this weekend, crews have been dispatched to Huntington, Somerset, Allegheny, 13th Street, 46th Street, Tioga and 8th Street on the Market-Frankford Line. Work has also been performed at the North Philadelphia and Snyder Stations on the Broad Street Line.
