Brightline to Begin High Speed Testing at 110 MPH Through Palm Beach County

Brightline will begin testing trains at 110 miles-per-hour, in northern Palm Beach County as soon as Saturday, February 11. This phase of Brightline testing will occur throughout February and March. The testing will take place in Palm Beach County including Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, North Palm Beach, Lake Park, Riviera Beach and West Palm Beach. Testing will take place daily between 7AM and 4PM. Flaggers will be present at railroad crossings when there is ACTIVE testing taking place in the area.

Brightline began high speed testing at 110 mph in the fall of 2022 through Martin and St. Lucie Counties. The testing is in preparation for opening to Orlando in 2023 and will continue in phases along the 129-mile rail corridor between West Palm Beach and Cocoa.

Brightline is working closely with community partners, government agencies and news media to spread the word and highlight rail safety via multiple channels including on social media and with public service announcements.
