Crews will be unloading rail along the FEC corridor in Palm Beach County, potentially closing rail crossings on roadways in Lake Worth, Lantana, Boynton Beach and Boca Raton.

The train delivering the rail — which look like large metal beams — is expected to be in the area through Wednesday.

The rail train was expected to move through the area last week, but the delivery was delayed because of a scheduled change.

This is All Aboard’s fifth delivery of rail in the South Florida area. In total, the beams span about 7.5 miles.

The material will be used to add a second track to the FEC line as part of the company’s Brightline passenger rail service linking South Florida to Orlando.
