SEPTA will be closing the trolley tunnel in West Philly beginning August 1st for what they’re calling a Trolley Tunnel Blitz.[1. We couldn’t decide whether to go with a WWII joke or a this-sounds-like-a-dance joke. But it’s hard to resist an excuse to use a Wikipedia historical photo.]

Much like England moved people into its tunnels during the Blitz, so SEPTA will be moving works in for intense repair work.

During this 17-day shutdown, Trolley Routes 10, 11, 13, 34, and 36 will divert to 40th & Market Streets.
