A surveyor working on plans for the Miami-Dade Northeast Corridor commuter rail line has commenced work after being issued a Notice to Proceed by the county.
M.G. Vera and Associates mobilized in the corridor and began their survey work on April 5th, according to Brightline.
This work is necessary to advance the rail infrastructure design to the next phase, Brightline said.
In the coming weeks, the county is expected to issue another Notice to Proceed for the 30% level of
infrastructure drawings, which is currently being finalized with infrastructure design firm HNTB.
The Northeast Corridor is being built as part of a deal between Miami-Dade and Brightline. Up to seven stations are planned between downtown Miami and Aventura.
Brightline previously said it remarketed $285 million worth of bonds in February to support the project in both Miami-Dade and Broward, with a plan to receive access payments from both counties.
Broward’s commuter rail line is further behind, but progressing. FDOT and Broward County have completed several public meeting and are expected to identify a Locally Preferred Alternative for the service in the coming months.
