SEPTA, officials celebrate completion of Woodland Ave. Bridge Replacement Project

September 9, 2019

On Monday morning, SEPTA, local officials, including mayor Jim Kenney, and community members gathered on Woodland Avenue between 47th and 48th Streets to celebrate the completion of the Woodland Avenue Bridge Replacement Project. The bridge, which carries SEPTA Trolley Routes 11 and 36, and crosses the Media/Elwyn Regional Rail Line, has been fully replaced.

The bridge was originally built in the 1920s and had severely deteriorated due to age, weather and traffic. SEPTA partnered with the City of Philadelphia and PennDOT to manage the design and construction of the replacement bridge. Funding for the $7.3 million project was made possible by Act 89 of 2013, which has provided a large funding source for transportation infrastructure improvement projects throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The project began in Spring 2018 and was completed last month. Both trolley lines and street traffic were detoured during construction.
