Planning Underway For New Tri-Rail Train Station Near 79th Street

Residents of Miami’s Little River neighborhood are being asked to help plan for a new Tri-Rail stop in the 79th Street area.

Architect Plusurbia Design is now conducting workshops and surveys to help shape the design of the station, which will be located on the Brightline tracks.

The first workshop was conducted over the weekend, and another is planned in the coming weeks. An online survey is also now ongoing.

Planning is being funded by the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council, South Florida Regional Transportation Authority, and the City of Miami. Planning is also underway for a Midtown Miami station and a Downtown station.

Plusurbia principal Juan Mullerat told The Next Miami that planners are depending on resident and stakeholder input to understand their vision, and participation is highly encouraged.
