The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) consulting with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) held a public information workshop to obtain project information and provide input regarding the FEC/Amtrak Passenger Rail Study.
The project proposes to restore passenger service, in the form of Amtrak, on the Florida East Coast rail corridor from Jacksonville to West Palm Beach, with service continuing south to Miami on the CSX rail corridor. The purpose of the project is to enhance rail mobility and connectivity to Florida's east coast cities. Eight new stations are proposed, including St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, Titusville, Cocoa, Melbourne, Vero Beach, Fort Pierce, and Stuart, as well as an FEC/CSX rail interconnection in West Palm Beach. The proposed service would initially consist of two northbound and two southbound trains per day.
Aerial maps were on display and members of the study team were available during the workshop to informally discuss the project and to answer questions.
This workshop was held in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status.
The project manager wis Gregor Senger, FDOT, 954.777.4141 who can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
