Tri-Rail Station At Miami International Airport Delayed Until January

The long awaited Tri-Rail station at Miami International Airport, already a year behind schedule, has been delayed again.

An FDOT official told the Sun Sentinel that the station won’t open until at least January due to ‘quality control issues’.

The Miami Airport Tri-Rail station was temporarily closed in September 2011 and replaced with shuttle service from Hialeah Market Station. At the time, FDOT forecast that the new station at the Miami Intermodal Center (which is linked to the airport) would open in two years.

The Amtrak station at the MIC is also delayed, and a spokesman did not provide an opening date.
