SEPTA Launches Station Renovation Project

A ceremony was held on Wednesday to mark the debut of a $19 million project by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority to make the Tasker-Morris Station on the South Philadelphia Broad Street Line fully accessible.

The project will involve installation of an elevator from street level to the mezzanine level and a second elevator to the platform below.

Other work will include new lighting and other electrical improvements; ADA-compliant communications system upgrades with emergency call boxes and HD security cameras.; new safety and wayfinding signage; ADA-compliant guard rails and handrails; and modified fare lines for improved traffic flow.

The work is expected to be completed in early 2024 and will make 13 of the 22 Broad Street Line stations fully ADA accessible, SEPTA said.

The Tasker-Morris station serves approximately 3,000 riders on weekdays and will remain open during construction.
