PHILADELPHIA — Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority officials have released a draft environmental impact statement summarizing plans to extend the Norristown High speed Line to King of Prussia, Pa.

The 689-page report was 18 months in the making. The document puts the cost of the project at $1 to $1.2 billion, and narrows five possible rights-of-way identified in previous documents down to one preferred route.

SEPTA officials are asking the public to offer feedback on the environmental statement, and said that it chose the preferred route partially in response to concerns that the construction would require demolishing several individuals’ backyards.

The agency will hold three meetings at which members of the public can converse directly with employees: 1 to 4 and 5 to 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13 at the DoubleTree Hotel at 301 West DeKalb Pike, King of Prussia; and from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14 at the Norristown Municipal Building at 235 E. Airy Street, Norristown, Pa.
