Announcing Montgomery County Stimulus Projects

Against the backdrop of the 150 year-old North Wales Regional Rail Station building, General Manger Joseph Casey was joined by local, state, and community leaders to announce $17.4 million for extensive two-year federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) projects in Montgomery County.

"SEPTA has been fortunate to have been provided $191 million in federal ARRA funds to advance 32 projects region wide," said Casey. "Thirteen of these are construction projects in Montgomery County." It is estimated that over 300 area workers will be hired to help complete these projects. The ceremony also served as the ground breaking for the nearly $700,000 North Wales Station Renovation Project which will breath life into the existing station which is the pride of the community and was an original hub of the old North Penn Railroad. New passenger shelters, signage, and high-level platforms with ramps were recently completed at the station.

As the brisk wind blew festive banners adorning nearby construction fencing, Casey stated, "These projects will create new construction and manufacturing opportunities so critically needed to help our local economy." Casey and attending officials used decorative shovels to signify the beginning of site construction. The station will remain open and the work is expected to be completed in the summer 2010 with minimal impact to normal train service.
