The Future of Hollywood
The Tri-Rail Coastal Link
The Tri-Rail Coastal Link is an initiative led by the SFRTA and
FDOT to implement passenger rail service on the Florida East
Coast (FEC) railway between Jupiter, in Palm Beach County,
and downtown Miami within the next three to five years. Up
to 28 stations are proposed to connect activity centers along
the Southeast Florida coastline.
The Coastal Link will generate an extensive range of benefits
that go beyond the direct impacts of any individual project,
including spurring economic development,creating jobs,
improving regional access and mobility, and providing
opportunities for transit-oriented development.
All connected regions will benefit significantly from this project
in terms of jobs and output during construction and from
productivity gains after construction. Over 5,000 temporary
jobs will be created during development and construction of the
project, which will immediately impact unemployment levels in
all three counties. Additional jobs will be created in the real
estate construction sector to build the incremental vertical
development around the station areas.
