    The ongoing construction at the Gallery in Center City will lead to a big change to SEPTA service as starting tomorrow as SEPTA riders will not be able to access the Jefferson Station from the 8th Street station.

    SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch says that riders can use the Market Frankfort Line at 8th and 11th Streets to access the station from either direction.

    “That option of using the Market Frankfort Line for that stretch of three blocks is still there and the underground access between 11th street and Jefferson Station,” Busch said. “That still is provided.”

    There is currently no change to the underground access between the 11th Street and Jefferson Stations. Busch said that riders who normally use the trains between the 8th and Jefferson Stations can also use the stairs and elevators to exit both stations and travel on Market Street.

    Busch said there is no timetable on when access at the Gallery will be restored, noting that is simply a part of the ongoing construction projects.
