Project Description
: The Tri-Rail Coastal Link Study, formerly known as the South Florida East Coast Corridor (SFECC) Study, proposes reintroducing passenger service along an 85-mile stretch of the Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway corridor between downtown Miami and Jupiter. Such service will connect the hearts of 28 densely-populated municipalities in eastern Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. FDOT has completed Phases I and II of this study which is about to enter the federal environmental process.  Within Miami-Dade County, the last stop (furthest north) would be Aventura.
 
Project Goals: A plan to expand commuter passenger train service that will connect downtowns from Miami to Jupiter along 85 miles of FEC tracks.  Tri-Rail currently runs on CSX tracks mostly west of I-95. This proposed new service will run through the downtowns and augment existing service.
 
Project Benefits:
  • Connects Downtown Miami to Aventura
  • Connection to Palm Beach County
  • Within 2-mile radius: 323,000 residents and 239,000 jobs
Possible Modes:
  • Heavy Rail Transit (HRT)
