West Palm Beach commissioners delayed talks regarding All Aboard Florida’s request to close a section of a downtown alleyway until October. The private rail company hopes to build a station for its express passenger train service in the alley space.

City commissioners were expected to discuss the request at a meeting Monday, but officials said the item has been delayed and will not appear on the commission’s agenda, according to Palm Beach Post.

The alley is located between Datura and Evernia streets to the west of the Florida East Coast Railway tracks.

“We are still working with the city,” All Aboard Florida’s public affairs manager Ali Soule said Thursday. “We believe the item will go before the commission in October. We are still moving forward.”

The alleyway abandonment is one of two items All Aboard Florida asked the city commission to approve as part of its plan to build a $29 million train station between Datura and Evernia streets. [Palm Beach Post] Christopher Cameron
