Brightline Update Martin County June 19, 2023

Martin County, Fl – Here is an update on the Brightline Schedule beginning Wednesday, June 21 through Friday, June 23.

Brightline will continue train testing up to 110 mph in Martin County, beginning Wednesday, June 21 through Friday, June 23.
Testing will impact multiple railroad crossings at a time. Testing WILL ALSO impact mariners at the St. Lucie River Bridge — an additional 1-2 trains will be passing over the bridge per hour. During the testing period, Brighline will post a bridge monitor at the St. Lucie River Bridge to communicate with mariners via VHF-FM Channel 9.
Flaggers will be present at railroad crossings where ACTIVE high-speed testing is under way and Brightline is working closely with local law enforcement agencies in testing areas. Work could bring additional wait times at railroad crossings.
