Tri-Rail Coastal Link Study
As the corridor management consultant for the Tri-Rail Coastal Link Study, RS&H is analyzing the reintroduction of rail service to the historic Flagler Railroad line (Florida East Coast Railway) from the Jupiter area to downtown Miami. The proposed project is expected to compete for funding under the Federal Transit Administration New Starts program and estimated to create thousands of jobs while boosting economic development in the surrounding area.
The project aims to address congestion along the densely populated coastal corridors of I-95, US 1, and Old Dixie/Federal Highway by providing a multimodal transportation alternative to travelers, as well as accommodating increased needs for freight transport through the region. The new network will include a mix of express and local rail service and interface with the existing South Florida Regional Transportation Authority’s Tri-Rail service. To provide a truly multimodal regional network, the service will also include bus and highway connections through Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties.
