A part of SEPTA's Media-Elwyn Regional Rail Line will be temporarily taken out of service this summer due to construction.

Beginning June 18, stops west of Swarthmore Station will be shut down to allow the Crum Creek Viaduct Replacement Project to commence. The project is scheduled to be completed September 5.

Stations affected by the outage include: Elwyn, Media, Moylan-Rose Valley and Wallingford.

Riders will be transported from those affected stops to and from Swarthmore by shuttle bus. Regular service will operate between Swarthmore and Center City.

SEPTA has scheduled five public meetings to discuss the project and service options. All meetings are scheduled to run from 4 to 8 p.m.:

• Monday, May 16: Elwyn Rail Station, 149 Elwyn Road

• Tuesday, May 17: Media Rail Station, 309 Media Station Road

• Wednesday, May 18: Swarthmore Rail Station, Park Avenue and Chester Road

• Thursday, May 19: Wallingford Rail Station, 141 East Possum Hollow Road and Kershaw Avenue

Work crews will replace the Crum Creek Viaduct with funds from Pennsylvania Act 89.
