We're on track to Orlando.

Construction is underway on the 170-mile Orlando extension between West Palm Beach and Orlando, which will connect train service from South Florida to Central Florida. Construction includes road, rail and bridge work as well as railroad crossing upgrades and improvements.

For current construction and closure updates, choose your location from the drop-down menu on the left.

In preparation for train service, Brightline will upgrade and improve a total of 28 bridges and 155 at-grade railroad crossings along the corridor between West Palm Beach and Cocoa, which parallels the existing Florida East Coast Railway. During these temporary closures, at-grade crossings will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic and watercraft may experience temporary delays at bridges. 

Please proceed with extra caution through work zones and adhere to posted detour signs and speed limits. 

Construction in Quiet Zones between Miami and West Palm Beach:

If active construction is taking place or if there is an emergency, per the federal train horn rule, the locomotive engineer will follow the law and sound the horn, even in established quiet zones.

Brightline will continue work in late 2020 on signal installations, upgrades and testing between Miami and West Palm Beach. This work, which will last into 2021, will result in periodic interruptions to quiet zones to effectively carry out the work. We apologize for any inconvenience.
