Malvern SEPTA Work Should Be Completed By Early November
The project, which has cost nearly $10 million and been underway since early 2010, should be finished up soon.
The $9.2 million dollar project at the Malvern train station is finally coming to an end. Major work should be finished by the first week of November, according to SEPTA spokeperson Heather Redfern.
"There might be some painting, signage and landscaping that needs to be completed, but construction is targeted to be complete at that time," Redfern said in an email.
According to SEPTA, the finished project will be ADA compatible and will include:
- a new pedestrian underpass (i.e., a tunnel)
- new, energy-efficient lighting
- intertrack fencing and related exterior improvements.
- expanded parking
The construction project has hampered commuters and clogged parking lots, and it even forced the on-site coffee shop, Caffe Craze, to close temporarily back in June. The project began in March 2010 and is being headed by Philadelphia-based James J. Anderson Construction.
