MIAMI – State, city, and transportation officials will host a groundbreaking ceremony Sept. 27 to mark construction of the new Miami Central Station. The station will link all forms of ground transportation in the Miami area, and connect them to Miami International Airport via the recently opened MIA Mover train.
Construction began May 18, 2011, but formal ceremonies will take place tomorrow.
Miami Central Station will feature grade-level tracks for Amtrak, Metrorail Transit, and Tri-Rail commuter trains, plus future high speed rail service. The station is part of the $2 billion Miami Intermodal Center developed by the Florida Department of Transportation. It includes major road improvements, a rental car center, the MIA mover, and Central Station.
Florida Secretary of Transportation Ananth Prasad will join local officials and representatives of Amtrak, Greyhound, Tri-Rail, and transit agencies for the ceremony launching the station project. Completion is expected in 2013.
