The station at 12th and Locust Street in Philadelphia will get two new elevators, one for riders to move from the street to the concourse and the other from the concourse to the platform; image from PATCO.

PATCO, the high-speed commuter rail service between Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Camden County, New Jersey, plans to install elevators at six remaining stations that lack them, bringing the service into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), The Courier-Post reported. Sownski Sullivan Architects handled the redesign, and a US$3-million construction-oversight contract has been awarded to Burns Engineering of Philadelphia. Construction, which could start by the end of 2017, is estimated to cost more than US$15 million and take four years. Stations to get elevators are Collingswood and Haddonfield, New Jersey, in phase one; Westmont in Haddon Township, New Jersey, and Ashland in Voorhees, New Jersey, in phase two; and Camden City Hall and 12th and Locust Street in Philadelphia in phase three.
