Following several successful station cleaning blitzes in recent months, SEPTA will continue the initiative this weekend (August 27, 28, 29) at Church St. Station on the Market-Frankford Line.
Church St. 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 Market-Frankford Line during the nighttime closures, customers who normally use Church St. Station can go to the Arrott Transportation Center or Erie-Torresdale Stations.
SEPTA has been doing these station blitzes on the Market-Frankford and Broad Street Lines over the last several months. In addition to this weekend, crews have been dispatched to Huntington, Somerset, Allegheny, 13th Street, 46th Street, Erie-Torresdale, Tioga and 8th Street on the Market-Frankford Line. Work has also been performed at the North Philadelphia, Snyder, Lombard-South and Ellsworth-Federal Stations on the Broad Street Line.
