Normally I dont post directly from the FNA website, but this issue was brought up here:
From our SEPTA representative –
The work underway on Girard Ave from 2nd St to Frankford Ave is routine track maintenance – grinding, welding and replacement of track and concrete. This is not a long term project, SEPTA is scheduled to complete this project around mid-March 2012. SEPTA has committeed to letting FNA know if there are any substantial shortening or delays in the schedule.
Please share this info with your friends and neighbors!
