    Hi Mooviters,

    SEPTA crews will work around-the-clock tackling critical track and power maintenance, station upgrades, and intensive cleaning as part of the 2024 Trolley Tunnel Blitz.

    SEPTA Trolley Routes 10 [T1], 34 [T2], 13 [T3], 11 [T4], and 36 [T5] will not operate in the Center City tunnel from 10 p.m. on Friday, July 12 through 6 a.m. on Monday, July 29.

    Trolley service will begin and end at 40th and Market Streets. Customers can board SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line [L] at 40th Street Station for travel to Center City. For travel from Center City to University City and Southwest Philadelphia, riders can board the Market-Frankford Line at 13th Street and then connect with trolley routes at 40th Street.

    Work that will be completed includes:

    • Replace worn track at various locations
    • Clean out all pipes, drains, and vent wells
    • Replace overhead contact wire
    • Maintenance of entire tunnel signal system
    • Heavy cleaning and maintenance at all stations including graffiti removal, painting, and lighting upgrades
