GIRARD AVENUE TROUBLES An early morning water main break along the Girard Avenue Bridge over I-76 and Kelly Drive caused havoc both for motorists and 15 riders. As of late this afternoon, the 15 was still detouring off of Girard between 33 and 34 Sts. The interesting thing is that SEPTA has made no mention of it on its web site (despite the fact that the 15 is a fairly important crosstown line), but the Smartravler site does have detour info posted. On the flip side, Smartravler makes no mention of the 11 bus bridge between Darby Loop and Woodland/Island, but the SEPTA web site mentions it, however you'd have to look pretty closely for it.
