Speaking of Boca: https://www.masstransitmag.com/rail/new ... -this-year
The long-planned Brightline station for Boca Raton is getting closer to being built, with the project’s first phase of construction scheduled to start in March.

The pandemic led the rail line last year to stop running its trains, but that hasn’t halted plans to develop stations in Boca Raton, as well as in Aventura and at PortMiami.

In Boca Raton, the build-out of a planned $46 million station will start in March with the construction of a temporary parking lot and garden. The latest steps come more than a year after the Boca Raton City Council unanimously approved the new station in December 2019.

Since that article was posted in January, this should mean that final phases of construction are currently underway and should likely be done sometime this year.

Brightline’s Porritt confirms that the new station opposite the mall and parking facility at Aventura, south of Fort Lauderdale, is under construction, and tells News Wire that the community garden and parking garage for the new station at Boca Raton, “will begin in the next few weeks,” adding, “both stations are expected to become operational in 2022.” Plans for a station at PortMiami are still under negotiation, though details there have likely been affected by Brightline’s decision to sever its relationship with Richard Branson’s Virgin Group last year.
