I was at the meeting last night. There were only 15 people attending plus one from Amtrak. It is only preliminary with more detailed information coming out next year. Most of the questions were that people living near the tracks would object to construction noise at night as well as tall, unsightly towers in their neighborhood. Also the cutting away of trees near the tracks.
- The project would take five years to complete, and be from 2015 and 2020
- They plan to have only one of the four tracks, maybe two, out of service at one time, and are trying to avoid too much service disruption with SEPTA.
- some work at day and the bulk of it at night; they will try to mitigate noise at night
For those who want lots of detail, here includes images of the material that was handed out:http://www.flickr.com/photos/jacorbett70/s...57630012376937/
