Midtown Miami’s new train station is proposed to be built under the I-195 overpass, just north of 36th Street, transit officials told The Next Miami.
A spokesperson for the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority cautioned that the exact location is still subject to change.
In negotiations during the past few weeks with Brightline, company officials have said that the Florida East Coast Railway may require sidings for the station. If sidings are required, the station location and cost could change.
A capital cost of $3.9 million is currently budgeted, along with ongoing maintenance of $700,000 per year.
As currently planned, the station would only serve Tri-Rail. The station would join MiamiCentral as the two new stops for Tri-Rail’s Northeast Corridor service.
An exact construction and opening date is yet to be determined. FECR and All Aboard Florida require that the SFRTA obtain approval and cover all costs they identify before beginning construction on any additional stations. In addition to approval from FECR, environmental clearance is also needed.
