Mayor Nutter and other local officials celebrated the $30 million rehabbing of two Broad Street Line subway stations Monday, marking the end of 32 SEPTA projects funded with $191 million in federal stimulus grants.
Noting that 507 jobs were created by the upgrades to the Spring Garden and Girard stations, Nutter said: "This is what infrastructure renewal is all about."
The overhaul was the first for the 1920s-era stations.
Workers installed elevators and new stairs, new lighting and signs, new cashier booths and fare lines, new power and fire-suppression systems. They repaired floors and ceilings and installed colorful artwork commissioned for the stations.
