Proposed SEPTA 2021 Capital Budget includes a multi-level parking garage at the Conshohocken train station has previously reported on the plan to put a surface lot next to the Conshohocken train station once it moves to just above a new railroad crossing at Oak Street. Also in the mix is an approved apartment complex that would sit between the new train station and the Schuylkill River.

SEPTA’s plan was outlined in the 2020 Capital Budget:

Now in the proposed capital budget for 2021, SEPTA is proposing $37.17 million, which is $27.17 million more than it had the 2020 capital budget.

The parking structure appears to be in addition to the planned surface lot. It also references that the garage is intended to support PennDOT’s I-76 Integrated Corridor Management Program, which would encourage drivers heading to Center City to exit the highway at Conshohocken, park, and take the train. Signage on the highways would provide information to encourage this behavior like train departure/arrival times, availability of parking, etc.

More to come.
