Brightline Breaks Ground on New Station

Ground has been broken for a new station in the Miami region that will be used by Brightline.

The 17,500-foot facility will be build on three aces in Adventura, Florida, near a shopping center.

It will have an 860-foot platform and 240 parking spaces. The project includes the building a pedestrian bridge over railroad right-of-way and Biscayne Boulevard that will provide direct access to the Miami-Dade Transit bus terminal in Aventura Mall.

Although Brightline suspended service in March due to the CVOID-19 pandemic, it normally operates between Miami and West Palm Beach.

Brightline has announced that it plans to build additional in Boca Raton and PortMiami.

The Aventura Station is expected to be completed in fall 2021.

The county is providing $76 million for the station, which is expected to generate $90.8 million annually in economic impacts over a 30-year period.
