Tri-Rail Coastal Link

The Tri-Rail Coastal Link train service will bring six stations to the eastern side of Miami-Dade County when it opens in 2020.

The commuter rail service would connect Jupiter and Miami, with a total of 25 stops. The train stations will likely be set up near 36th Street, 79th Street, 125th Street, 163rd Street and Aventura Boulevard, Miami Today News reported. Tri-Rail Coastal Link is expected to cost at least $800 million, which includes costs of constructing a station structure and acquisition of land.

“There’s been years and years of work with the cities’ planning staff to site these locations,” Amie Goddeau of the state Department of Transportation’s Planning and Environmental Management Office told Miami Today. [Miami Today]Mark Maurer
