ORLANDO, Fla. — Editor’s note: This story is available as a result of a content partnership between WFTV and the Orlando Business Journal.
Brightline has passed another milestone for its $2.7 billion, 170-mile extension between Orlando International Airport and West Palm Beach.
Work on the intercity rail company’s extension recently hit 75% completion, according to its most recent monthly bond disclosure.
More than 1,000 workers have been active on the project across multiple segments.
The work comes as Brightline completed a 3.5-mile segment near Orlando International Airport in February, the first segment of the project to wrap up construction.
A second new set of trains was delivered to the Orlando vehicle maintenance facility last month, as well.
