SEPTA completes Woodland Avenue Bridge replacement project
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) yesterday announced its crews have completed work to replace the Woodland Avenue Bridge in Philadelphia.
SEPTA worked in partnership with the city of Philadelphia to replace the original Woodland Avenue Bridge that was built in the 1920s, authority officials said in a press release.
Used by two SEPTA trolley routes, vehicles and pedestrians, the bridge crosses over the Media/Elwyn regional rail line.
The project also included reconstruction of the street, sidewalks and utilities, as well as the installation of new continuous-welded rail and other track component enhancements.
The project was funded by federal, state and local sources.
