SEPTA, Media/Elwyn Regional Rail Line – Crum Creek Viaduct Replacement

SEPTA, Media/Elwyn Regional Rail Line – Crum Creek Viaduct Replacement

Project Overview

The original viaduct, built in 1895 and repaired in 1983, is at the end of its useful life. Work will replace the 925-foot high bridge ensuring rail service will remain safe and reliable well into the future. The Media/Elwyn Regional Rail Line, locally known as “The Trestle” carries more than 320 passenger trains a week. The final structure will feature a closed deck with continuous welded rails over stone ballast. This will produce a smoother ride for passengers.
