Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Florida High Speed Rail was a proposed high-speed rail project in the U.S. state of Florida. Initial service would run between the cities of Tampa and Orlando, with plans to then extend service to South Florida, terminating in Miami at the Miami Central Station. Trains with a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h) to 186 mph (299 km/h) would have run on dedicated rail lines alongside the state's existing highway network. As of 2009, the project was headed by the Florida Rail Enterprise (formerly the Florida High Speed Rail Authority), an agency under the authority of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). On January 28, 2010, President Obama announced $1.25B in funds to construct the Tampa-to-Orlando route of this project. Construction of the line was slated to begin in 2011, with the initial Tampa-Orlando phase completed by 2014.show more
