Planned light rail would connect FLL, Port Everglades — here’s when you could ride

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – People headed from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Port Everglades and the Broward County Convention Center could whiz above traffic as part of a planned elevated light rail system.

Broward County Transit officials hope to have rails up and trains moving before the end of the decade. Officials approved the $4.3 billion plan about a year ago.

If all goes according to plans, the three-mile first phase, running from FLL to the Port Everglades and convention center area, would be finished by 2028.

This will only be a game-changer if this light rail connects to Brightline and/or Tri-Rail. Is there a proposed map we can view?

Also, over 4 billion dollars to run 3 miles??? Sheesh. Gotta be a new cost-per-mile record for railroad construction
