Walsh Construction joins SEPTA to celebrate Wawa Station grand opening

DELAWARE COUNTY, PA – Walsh Construction joined Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) and Wawa leaders for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil the recently completed Wawa Station, built by Walsh Construction and the new terminus of the Media/Wawa Regional Rail Line.

Construction on the Elwyn to Wawa Service Restoration Project began in 2018. It restores more than 3.5 miles of Regional Rail service to a growing area of Delaware County, supporting recent activities and offering excellent opportunities for future transit-oriented development. The opening of Wawa Station marks the first extension of SEPTA’s rail service since the Airport Line was established in 1985. SEPTA trains last served this area in 1986.

Walsh Construction worked with SEPTA to restore the track segment to service, along with the replacement of 3.5 miles of trackbed and track, four rail bridges and the overhead catenary power system. The project also required slope stabilization and the installation of Positive Train Control. The project builds on SEPTA’s sustainability efforts through the rehabilitation of four stream culverts, a variety of stormwater measures along the right-of-way and at the station, the installation of a new pedestrian culvert to accommodate the future extension of the Chester Creek Trail, along with bike racks and connections to a future township trail at the station. Walsh Construction was also responsible for constructing the station's 600-space parking deck.
