Members of SEPTA's Track Department will replace almost 7,500 feet (more than one mile) of track on the westbound side of the tunnel between 22nd Street Station and the 40th Street Portal.

Other work that will be completed during the trolley closure includes:

Replacing eastbound protection board (a part of the system attaching overhead wire to the tunnel ceiling).
