Brightline Orlando Line 45% Done

Brightline said its line to Orlando is about 45 percent completed.

The route is expected to be completed in 2022 and will link with the carrier’s current northern terminus in West Palm Beach.

An Orlando station facility is about a quarter completed. It is expected to have 109,000 square feet of space.

Brightline may share 28 miles of tracks in the Orlando area with commuter railroad SunRail, which would enable Brightline to reach Walt Disney World while allowing SunRail to serve the Orlando airport.

Although Brightline hopes to eventually  create an extension to Tampa, it has yet to reach an agreement for a lease of right-of-way with the Florida Department of Transportation, Orlando Utilites Commission, and the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.
