As part of construction on the new Conshohocken Regional Rail Station, SEPTA in-house forces and additional contractors will be completing several critical items during a 10-day period in October. Please see the project schedule and impacts 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.
