Passengers on a South Jersey transit line face another series of schedule changes due to construction work. 

PATCO trains will use only one track to cross the Ben Franklin Bridge from Friday through Oct. 21. The work was originally scheduled to begin on Labor Day weekend.

The work is on the north side of the track. Construction on the south side of the bridge was completed during a 60-day closure that ended on Aug. 1.

PATCO says it will provide more trains and have fewer gaps in service during this phase of the $103 million project to update the system’s infrastructure on the bridge.
