Crews will be unloading rail beams along the FEC corridor in southern Palm Beach County and northern Broward County, potentially closing rail crossings on roadways in Boca Raton, Pompano Beach and Oakland Park.

The train delivering rail is expected to be in the area through Thursday.

“Crews in the field will work to avoid blocking two crossings at once and minimize the time the crossings are blocked,” the company said.

This is All Aboard’s 7th delivery of rail for the Brightline project.

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.
