    SEPTA Approves Plan for High Speed Line to KOP

    The SEPTA Board of Trustees approved a proposed route to extend the Norristown High Speed Line to the King of Prussia Mall and Valley Forge Casino. NBC10's Drew Smith reports.

    Commuters should see a faster ride between Philadelphia and its Montgomery County suburbs thanks to a nearly 5-mile stretch of proposed rail.

    The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority on Thursday approved the Norristown High-Speed Line extension that would provide direct service to King of Prussia Mall. The extension would give passengers a faster link between King of Prussia, Center City and University City, possibly cutting the commute by 30 minutes each way.

    The more than $1 billion project must clear an environmental and engineering review before SEPTA can break ground.
