It’s not quite one-stop shopping in King of Prussia, but it could take a step in that direction. SEPTA has issued a request for proposals for the $1 billion of work that will go into the King of Prussia Rail extension of the High Speed Line in Norristown.
The extension aims to link the region’s three largest employment centers, which are King of Prussia, Center City and University City, as well as ease some of the congestion on roads throughout Upper Merion and nearby communities. SEPTA said it is seeking with the RFP detailed preliminary design work, including surveying, utility and geotechnical investigations for the project. This work will complete 15 percent of the total design of the proposed rail project., writes Natalie Kostelni in the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The extension should ease some of the heavy congestion that clogs up the Upper Merion area, including Norristown, during peak travel times.
