SEPTA's Rail Plans for KOP

SEPTA updated citizens today on its plans for the King of Prussia Rail project that could cost as much as $650 million. It plans to add stops to the Norristown high-speed line to serve a community now consumed by traffic.

(Check out the accompanying map to see all the route alternatives.)
