The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) later this month will host three public hearings on the King of Prussia Rail project.

To be held Nov. 13 and 15, the meetings will include an open house and presentation about the project, which calls for extending SEPTA's Norristown High Speed Line into King of Prussia and Upper Merion Township, Pennsylvania.

The hearings will give locals a chance to comment on the project's draft environmental impact statement, which was released in mid-October.

SEPTA will accept comments on the document through Dec. 4. In addition to the public hearings, the agency has scheduled four separate general information sessions on Nov. 6, 9, 14 and 15.

The King of Prussia extension is expected to cost $1 billion to $1.2 billion.
