Railfan Pictures of the Week - 10/18/2015

SEPTA Ninth Street Station Lansdale PA September 19 and 24 2015

A station is born : Part Six

Part One can be found here, Part Two here, Part Three here, Part Four here, Part Five here.

The frame and supports for the entrance canopy to the station arrive. September 19 2015
On the north side, the walkways and parking lot are taking shape.
Five days later, the north side of the parking lot (where some of the 125 "temporary" parking spots will be) and walkways have fresh asphalt and poles for lighting. The rest of the "temporary" parking will be located on the other side of the substation. September 24 2014
The area in front of the station, which will be the "permanent" parking lot, has been cleared and is being graded. There will be room for 78 cars.
Although this looks like it would be an entrance to the station, the plans call for only one point of ingress/egress, at Ninth Street near the grade crossing. It would appear the lot will be separated from the business park access road, either by landscaping or a fence, and the Ninth Street extension will connect with Kenilworth Avenue and will be the only way out of the parking lot. Future plans may extend Ninth Street to either Cannon Avenue or Moyer Road.
The curbs for the entrance are being poured. Ninth Street will become a two way street, and stop signs will be removed from Ninth and added to Walnut, allowing traffic to flow unimpeded between Broad Street and Kenilworth Avenue. There will be no left turns allowed coming out of the parking lot.
