Brightline Says Orlando Extension Half Done

Brightline said it recently passed the halfway mark for construction of its extension to Orlando, Florida.

The company celebrated the milestone during an event held at the future site of a vehicle maintenance facility just south of the Orlando International Airport.

During the event, attendees signed a 12-foot, bright yellow stick of steel rail, which will be incorporated into Brightline’s track between the airport station and the maintenance facility.

Brightline is building a 170-mile extension from West Palm Beach to the airport in a $4.2 billion project.

Regular Brightline service operates between Miami and West Palm Beach although that service has been suspended since last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
