The Florida east coast line to be updated
The board of South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) has awarded Transdev's U.S. rail infrastructure maintenance subsidiary, VTMI a $161 million contract to maintain track, signaling, and structures on the 71-mile Tri-Rail regional rail line from West Palm Beach to Fort Lauderdale and Miami, on Florida's east coast.
The Tri-rail Coastal Link proposed newly re-introducing passenger service along an 85-mile stretch of the Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway corridor between downtown Miami and Jupiter. Train Service will connect 28 densely-populated municipalities in eastern Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
The planned Tri-Rail Coastal Link is a strategic investment for Southeast Florida and has the ability to enhance the long-term competitive position of region.
The Coastal Link will, according to FEC, generate an extensive range of benefits that go beyond the direct impacts of any individual project, including spurring economic development, creating jobs, improving regional access and mobility, and providing opportunities for transit-oriented development.
