Independence Hall Station was originally opened in 1908 and rehabilitated for the bicentennial in 1974-76. Recent improvements, constructed between April 2019 to March 2021, include new headhouses and curb bumpouts at street level, waterproofing, structural repairs, system upgrades and updates, and new architectural finishes at station level. This presentation will highlight the project’s challenges and lessons learned during the design and construction phases.
