SEPTA's Warminster Line Tie Renewal & Brush Cutting Project

Work Activity 

SEPTA’s contractor will be removing and replacing railroad ties along the Warminster Line. A second contractor will be trimming and chipping trees and brush and removing designated hazard trees that could be a potential threat to the operation of the railroad. All work will be performed on SEPTA’s right-of-way during mid-day hours.
