SEPTA's Market-Frankford Subway-Elevated Line between 40th Street Station and 69th Street Terminal will be closed for 16 days starting tomorrow. Shuttle buses will replace normal train service during the construction closure.
The closure, part of the $567 million rebuilding of the El in West Philadelphia, will begin at 8 p.m. tomorrow and end at 5 a.m. Aug. 27.
During the closure, construction crews will replace about 900 feet of elevated structure between 52d and 55th Streets and 480 feet between 46th and 48th Streets. Crews will also complete demolition of the platform at 46th Street Station.
