Posted September 11, 2021
SEPTA has sustained substantial damage on all railroad crossing therefore, in an effort to repair the SEPTA indicators, the following Roads will be shutdown beginning Monday, September 13, 2021 and remain closed for a duration of 6 weeks.
- Cherry Street
- Poplar Street
- Harry Street (Open to pedestrian traffic only)
Ash Street will remain fully operational to all traffic. Police will be present and monitoring the intersection in the morning and in the afternoon for the first 2 days.
Following the repairs on the above-mentioned streets, Ash Street will close for repair (Date TBD).
Please take caution as the trains will be running with the train coming to a complete stop at Ash Street. The conductor will get out and secure the area for the train to move through slowly, then re-board. This will cause a delay in train service.
