Look out for trains downtown! Signal work in progress

 

 

As Brightline upgrades the signal system for its tracks through downtown this week and next, off-duty officers and safety personnel will be stationed at crossings to ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians, the rail line says. Safety personnel will “flag” or block the grade crossings as the trains pass through.

The work is taking place Thursday through Tuesday, July 13 through 18, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The following crossings will be affected: 15th Street, 3rd Street, Banyan Boulevard, Clematis Street, Fern Street, Gardenia Street, Hibiscus Street and Okeechobee Boulevard (eastbound and westbound).
