SEPTA has announced that it will be working to construct several critical features of the new Conshohocken Regional Rail Station over a 10-day period in the second half of October.
The schedule is below:
- Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15th and 16th, from approximately 7 AM to 6 PM:
- Installation of concrete panels on the outbound platform (next to Schuylkill River Trail). This work will be performed from the train tracks.
- Monday through Thursday, Oct. 17th through Oct. 20th, from approximately 9 AM to 3 PM:
- Installation of manholes on existing stormwater lines. Work has been approved by the County; signage and barriers will be installed to warn trail users of work next to trail. This work will result in a partial closure of the Schuylkill River Trail at the end of the proposed Oak Street grade crossing.
- 11 PM on Friday, Oct. 21st through 3 PM on Sunday, Oct. 23rd: Installation of underground utilities in the Oak Street grade crossing track area. Work will be performed during track outage. Lighting at the new crossing will be used during the overnight hours.
- Monday, Oct. 24th, from approximately 9 AM to 3 PM: Additional work as needed
SEPTA shared that heavy machinery will be present throughout this work.
Service will be impacted on four dates during the work. On October 15-15 and October 22-23, shuttle buses will transport Regional Rail passengers between the Spring Mill and Elm Street stations.
Once completed, the new Conshohocken Regional Rail Station will feature high-level, accessible platforms with ramps, stairs, guardrails, and handrails. A new station building, as well as a new canopy over the platform, are also included in the project, along with the realignment of the Schuylkill River Trail, a vehicular and pedestrian grade crossing at Oak Street, upgraded sign accessories, signage and lighting, plazas, walkways, and landscaping as well as installation of a stormwater management system.
