Improvements to 40th Street MFL Station

Nov 03, 2015 8 years ago

A local subway stop is set for an upgrade. On Monday, November 2nd, SEPTA held a groundbreaking ceremony for the 40th Street Station stop on the Market-Frankford line, which will receive a significant upgrade featuring new headhouses, improved lighting, and two elevators. 

The station serves a community comprised of residential, commercial, and institutional occupants. The station also provides a connection for SEPTA Bus Routes 30 and 40 and is a key point of travel connection when trolley service is diverted, like during the annual "Trolley Blitz." 

In addition to an aesthetic upgrade, the changes will also become ADA compliant. The $7.4 million project will begin in 2016, with a goal of completion by the end of the year. The 40th Street station serves 6,000 riders on weekdays.
