The Brightline Phase 2 Expansion will include a mix of track upgrades and new construction along a 168-mile rail corridor and will allow maximum allowable speeds of 110 mph between West Palm Beach and Cocoa, and 125 mph between Cocoa and Orlando. Herzog is the managing partner for the HSR Constructors joint venture constructing this $700 million express intercity passenger rail system expansion project.
Construction is divided up into four zones. HSR Constructors is the prime contractor for the north-south segment (Zone 4) from Cocoa to West Palm Beach and will build 129 miles of ballasted track within the existing Florida East Coast Railroad (FECR) right-of-way. HSR Constructors will also perform trackwork on the Zone 3 segment as a subcontractor. This 35-mile stretch of ballasted double track will be constructed in a new, grade-separated right-of-way, from Cocoa to the new OIA Intermodal Terminal.
Once finished, the entire system will be PTC-compliant and travel time between Miami and Orlando will be three hours.
