SEPTA’s KOP Rail project will extend the Norristown High Speed Line (NHSL) into King of Prussia, providing reliable, convenient and efficient connections between the region’s three largest employment centers – Center City, University City and King of Prussia. The light rail extension consists of two tracks that will run along a largely elevated structure and encompass five new stations. This new service will alleviate congestion on area roads, reduce travel times and transportation-related emissions, and provide access to jobs and opportunity for those living in transit-dependent communities.
In December 2021, the KOP Rail project was approved to enter the FTA Project Development Phase – a major milestone for the project to receive funding through the federal New Starts Program. Thirty percent design is nearly complete, and SEPTA anticipates that the cumulative estimated value of construction will be in excess of $1 billion. SEPTA envisions several large and technically diverse contracts to support the Project and is hosting the Forum to provide preliminary details about the project and create excitement about the upcoming procurements. SEPTA will be encouraging opportunities for certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) firms throughout these procurements.
We hope to see you there!
