The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority's (SEPTA) efforts to address critical safety, security and infrastructure needs along the Market-Frankford Line stations are continuing with work at Allegheny Station.
This follows the agency's efforts to address similar needs at the nearby Somerset Station, and the implementation of a new security plan, SEPTA officials said in a press release.
Allegheny Station will remain open while work is performed, however early closures are scheduled for three nights starting late next week on April 23-25, providing crews eight hours between closing and the morning reopening for intensive cleaning efforts, as well as maintenance and repair work.
"The work at Allegheny Station is part of SEPTA's comprehensive commitment to address issues at stations where there are significant challenges with the vulnerable population that have been exacerbated by the pandemic. This has been particularly acute at Market-Frankford Line stations along the Kensington Avenue Corridor, so that is where we are initially concentrating our resources," said SEPTA General Manager Leslie Richards. "These are complex issues, and we will continue to work with all of our partners on meaningful short- and long-term solutions."
