DRPA public hearings on waterfront rail scenarios

As the project moves forward, DRPA and PATCO will present the status of the analysis at two public open houses. The open houses are scheduled for:

Tuesday, September 22, 2009
Friends Meeting House
4th and Arch Streets
Philadelphia, PA 19106
5:30-7:30pm
Wednesday, September 30, 2009
The Historical Society of Pennsylvania
1300 Locust Street
Philadelphia, PA 19107
5:30-7:30pm

Alternatives Intially Considered:

  • Alternative PA-1 would add an above ground transit service along the Waterfront with a connection to PATCO services at Franklin Square.

  • Alternative PA-1 Extended proposes to extend SEPTA’s Subway-Surface Lines to Franklin Square via subway under Arch and Cherry Streets.  The route would continue to the Waterfront. 

  • Alternative PA-2 would extend rail service along or under Market Street to the Waterfront.

  • Alternative PA-3 would add an above ground transit service along the Waterfront via a connection to PATCO services at Franklin Square and operate as a loop using 7th Street, Cherry Street, 8th Street and Filbert Street with a connection to the Market East Concourse.
