A group of Florida residents has petitioned Florida Gov. Rick Scott to help them fight Florida East Coast Industries' construction of the All Aboard Florida passenger-rail service between Orlando and Miami."We moved to the Treasure Coast to get away from freeways, traffic jams and loud speeding trains," stated the petition, dated April 16.All Aboard Florida would connect south and central Florida along 195 miles of existing, active rail corridor in the eastern portion of the state. Forty new route miles would be constructed parallel to State Road 528 to connect to Orlando International Airport.The petition urges Scott to not support the use of any tax dollars, grants or federally backed loans for the proposed rail service. It also asks the governor to insist that the rail line be moved west of the coast along the turnpike.Meanwhile, All Aboard Florida late last week unveiled a new website about its project, www.allaboardflorida.com. The website was launched to "serve as the definitive source on all facts and information related to the project," All Aboard Florida officials said in a press release.
