PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – SEPTA is starting track and signal improvement work and it’s going to affect passengers on the Manayunk/Norristown regional rail lines for three of the four weekends in February.
SEPTA’s Kristin Geiger says the work begins February 2nd and 3rd, and continues February 9th, 10th, 16th and 17th.
It will affect passengers on the line between the Elm Street station and the Wissahickon station.
“We will have shuttle buses servicing Elm Street, Main Street, Norristown Transportation Center, Conshohocken and Spring Mill stations. Shuttle buses will not serve Miquon, Manayunnk or Ivy Ridge stations. Inbound passengers traveling to Manayunk or Ivy Ridge stations will transfer from shuttle buses to outbound trains at Wissahickon Train Station,” explains Geiger.
She says signs will be posted at each of the affected locations and there will be announcements on the trains.
