SEPTA Norristown High Speed Line Bridgeport PA February 13 and 27 and April 3 2013
With the impending closure of the Schuylkill River Bridge between Bridgeport and Norristown now scheduled for June 24 2013, service on the Norristown High Speed line will terminate in Bridgeport. Earlier RPTOW's showed the current Bridgeport platform (and its unsuitability) and the possible temporary platform. Evidently it should be changed to probable temporary platform, as by the middle of February SEPTA personnel had dismantled the deck and railings;
a couple weeks later, it had been stripped down to the bare joists ...
and by early April, rebuilt the platform, now with the only access being the ramp.
