SEPTA transportation center lands 'Project of the Year'award

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s (SEPTA) Frankford Transportation Center recently was named "Project of The Year" by the Delaware Valley Chapter of Project Management Institute.

The Frankford facility’s project management team "followed well-accepted project management guidelines to achieve cost, schedule and budget requirements," and "identified the significant risks associated with a nine-day rail outage required to complete the project," according to a prepared statement.

Opened in August 2003, the $187 million Frankford facility is SEPTA’s busiest, attracting more than 50,000 riders daily. The station provides access to one trackless trolley route, 15 bus routes and the Market-Frankford Elevated Line.
