On Wednesday, crews will pour the concrete for V-shaped columns that will serve both as structural pillars and architectural signature for the stations. In December, the company tested lighting options for the V columns.

On Wednesday morning, the company will put the first of the 18, 32-feet V columns in place. Each of the columns weighs about 145,000 pounds, the company said.

Brightline’s West Palm Beach station is currently under construction on Evernia Street near the South Rosemary Avenue intersection.

Brightline is scheduled to start service from Miami to West Palm Beach in 2017.
