Brightline Continues Train Testing Up to 110 MPH in Martin County Beginning Wednesday, July 19


STUART, Fla (July 14, 2023) – Brightline will continue train testing up to 110 mph in Martin County, Wednesday, July 19 through Thursday, July 20 in preparation for service to Orlando. The testing area will include multiple railroad crossings and the St. Lucie River railroad bridge. One to two passenger trains will be passing over the bridge per hour. During the testing period, Brightline 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. 

The public is encouraged to sign up for Brightline text alert updates for the latest information on high-speed testing schedules in their area: Text “RR110” to 888-384-0037.
