South Florida RTA obtains $28 million from USDOT for double-track project


On Feb. 24, U.S. Department of Transportation awarded a $28.8 million grant to South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) for an expansion project.

The authority will use the funds to help complete its Double Track Corridor Improvement program, which includes double-tracking the system, expanding stations, building 11 and replacing five bridges, and upgrading grade crossings and signal systems.

Once the project is complete, ridership is expected to triple to 28,000 daily passengers by 2015, according to a prepared statement.
