FRANKLIN SQUARE STATION REOPENING
Franklin Square Station was originally opened in 1936 as part of the Bridge Line operation between 8th & Market in Philadelphia and Broadway in Camden. The station has been opened and closed sporadically since the original opening. As a result of development surrounding the Franklin Square area, DRPA and PATCO are taking the necessary steps to re-open the station to passenger services. The station received its last major update during the last period of passenger service between 1976 and 1979. Since 1979, several modifications were made to the station to function as a location for emergency egress. The work covered under the current project will allow the station to become fully functional and in-line with the thirteen existing PATCO stations. The project will address improvements to the station's civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical systems and will provide access in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
