The company said crews on Saturday plan to pour 5,500 cubic yards of concrete at the site, which spans six city blocks and is located within walking distance of the American Airlines Arena and a short shuttle ride from PortMiami. The work is expected to take about 18 hours to complete.

Brightline officials said the Saturday’s work will mark the largest concrete pour at the site. The pour is expected to complete the foundation at the company’s MiamiCentral station.

After the weekend work, Brightline officials said vertical construction is set begin on the station’s buildings and train platforms.
