Trainspotter 0 Posted July 28, 2007 Share #1 Posted July 28, 2007 Regular MFL Service to Operate Next Two Weekends 16-Day Construction Outage Begins Friday, August 10 PHILADELPHIA, PA — SEPTA will operate regular Market-Frankford Line service for the next two weekends (July 27-29 and Aug. 3-5) providing continuous train travel between 69th Street Terminal and the Frankford Transportation Center for Market-Frankford Line passengers. Shuttle bus service will again operate in place of trains on Friday, August 10 when SEPTA shuts down the section of the line between 69th Street Terminal and 40th Street Station for 16 consecutive days beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 10 until 5 a.m. on Monday, August 27 due to heavy construction scheduled for the Market Street Elevated (MSE) reconstruction project. MSE is rebuilding the western portion of the Market-Frankford Line between 46th & Market Streets in West Philadelphia and Millbourne in Delaware County. It includes the reconstruction of 46th Street, 52nd Street, 56th Street, 60th Street and 63rd Street Stations in West Philadelphia and Millbourne Station in Delaware County. The construction project will also replace 11,000 feet of the guideway between Millbourne Station and 46th Street with a new single column bent structure which will open up Market Street and significantly improve the flow of traffic. Additional information on the project is available at the Market-Frankford Community Information Center located at 5344 Chestnut Street which will also be open for extended hours or online.
