Railroad & Bridge Construction & Train Testing
St. Lucie River Railroad Bridge
In May, we completed one of our final projects along our Orlando extension, the rehabilitation of the 100-year-old St. Lucie River railroad bridge in Stuart, FL. Brightline and contractor Scott Bridge Company Inc. crews worked 24/7 to complete the infrastructure work that includes the replacement of the mechanical, electrical and control components. Boaters will now see several benefits, including dependability of bridge openings and closings, which will reduce the risk of extended unplanned closures.
Brightline and the Florida East Coast Railway have launched the St. Lucie Bridge Schedule App and Website for mariners. The tech platforms communicate real-time schedule information providing the community with predictability and reliability of bridge openings. To download the bridge app, search for “Bridge Schedule” in the Apple and Android app stores, or visit http://www.bridgeschedule.com/. The app and website went live in coordination with the United States Coast Guard (USCG) temporary deviation on August 15.
