SEPTA extends service to allow construction

Posted on October 15, 2008

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) will extend El bus service for the next two weekends to allow crews to install train signal cables at a subway portal at 44th Street and inside the tunnel at 40th Street Station, as part of its Market Street Elevated (MSE) reconstruction project.

MSE is a critical overhaul of the western portion of the line, which opened for service more than 100 years ago in 1907. The project includes a streamlined, single-column support structure, six new customer-friendly stations and art-inspired architectural features that will improve the overall riding experience for passengers.

Rail mounted work cars will assist in the installations.
