Brightline to begin testing at Higher Speeds to Prepare for Orlando OPENING

Brightline will continue critical work on its Orlando extension with train testing in Northern Brevard County that will see trains travel up to 79 mph over the next week and increase to 110 mph in early 2023. The work, known as a signal and track cutover, will integrate a new second railroad track into the existing corridor and will take place along a 13-mile section of track, spanning 18 railroad crossings from Sharpes through Cocoa and Rockledge.

Flaggers will be present at all crossings continuously from 6 a.m., Saturday, October 29 through 6 p.m., Saturday, November 5 while the new rail signal system is commissioned and train testing up to 79 mph can be expected along the corridor. Work is expected to bring additional wait times at ALL railroad crossings. Stay off the tracks and never go around crossing gates.

Residents should be alert, follow the law around active railroad tracks and railroad crossings and be aware that once the second track is commissioned, rail traffic could run on BOTH tracks. Failure to follow the law could result in fines, points on your license or loss of life.
