SEPTA’s Elwyn-to-Wawa Service Restoration Project Update

August 2018 Project Update

With work on SEPTA’s Elwyn-to-Wawa Service Restoration Project underway, you may be seeing crews working along the track area – removing rail and ties, taking soil boring samples, surveying, and performing other work. The first major phase of work – the replacement of the Lenni Road grade crossing – is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 27.
The most important information in the update is the Lenni Road Grade Crossing Replacement section, which informs residents that:
Lenni Road will be closed at the rail grade crossing beginning on Monday, August 27 through approximately mid-November.  During this time, Lenni Road will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians 24 hours a day from below Station Lane to below the Chester Creek Trail, while crews replace and upgrade the rail grade crossing and re-grade the approaching roadway to improve sightlines.
