SEPTA to Upgrade Station

April 21, 2021

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority said it will address critical safety, security and infrastructure needs along the Market-Frankford Line stations as well as work to improve its Allegheny Station.

The agency said it has addressed similar needs at the Somerset Station, including implementation of a new security plan.

Although Allegheny Station will remain open while work is performed, some early closures will occur three nights starting for about a week starting on April 23.

That will provide workers eight hours between closing and the morning reopening for intensive cleaning efforts, as well as maintenance and repair work.

SEPTA officials said the issues facing the Market-Frankford Line stations along the Kensington Avenue Corridor are complex and will involve short- and long-term solutions.
