Railfan Pictures of the Week - 9/25/2016

Route 15 Richmond Street and Girard Avenue Philadelphia PA August 7 and 17 2016
The construction of the new Delaware Expressway continues but very little is Route 15 related.
The roadway is ready from Girard Avenue to Ann Street, waiting for the overhead.
Along the old alignment north of Ann Street, the rails have been paved over, never a good sign, although the return of the trolleys is currently expected in 2018.
On Girard Avenue, SEPTA has been renewing the track working westward from Richmond Street.
While vehicle cross traffic is on hold, temporary bridges provide access for pedestrians.
The end of the current project is Broad Street. Looks like the other side of Girard will have to wait until next year.
