All Aboard Florida’s Brightline train service has finalized the track plan for the second phase of its express route linking Miami to Orlando.2_rails__de__chemin_de__fer1_

In a letter to All Aboard officials on Tuesday, the Federal Railroad Administration said it has completed the review of its track design plans, which include safety features for railroad crossings.

All Aboard said the review was a “significant step towards the completion of our project.”

According to the FRA letter, the design plans must now be reviewed by state and county officials.

Brightline plans to run 32 trains a day along the Florida East Coast Railway tracks with stops in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando.

The company plans to launch service between Miami and West Palm Beach in 2017. All Aboard had said the West Palm Beach-to-Orlando segment would begin by the end of 2017 but a top company official said last month that the second phase may be slightly delayed.
