The people and tools they used to build Philly’s transportation system - Our infrastructure and transportation systems don’t fix themselves. The City relied on labor forces such as the over 1,000 workers who worked directly and indirectly to re-open the South Street Bridge in 2011, on budget and ahead of schedule. These infrastructure networks don’t come cheap, SEPTA needs $6.5 billion over the course of the next 10 years to achieve a state of good repair. It is incumbent on us to keep these systems strong for the next 100 years.
