Brightline to test 110 mph speeds

Starting October 17, 2022, Brightline will begin testing trains at their maximum speeds of 110 mph in Martin County.

Families, employees and community members should be alert and follow all traffic laws when traveling around railroad tracks and crossings.  The first phase of testing is expected to take place over a six-week period and include the following railroad crossings in Martin County:

-County Line Rd.
-Skyline Dr. (CR 722)
-Pitchford Landing
-Jensen Beach Blvd. (SR 707A)
-Palmetto Ave.

During the testing period, flaggers will be present at all crossings listed above. Drivers, pedestrians and cyclists should be aware that rail traffic will run BOTH tracks in BOTH directions.

Our school bus operators stop buses to look and listen at every railroad crossing whether or not a train is approaching. As safety is a collaborative effort, we hope our families, employees and community will "come aboard" in exercising caution when traveling near railroad crossings or train tracks.
