STUART, Fla (July 14, 2023) – Brightline will continue train testing up to 110 mph in Martin County, Wednesday, July 19 through Thursday, July 20 in preparation for service to Orlando. The testing area will include multiple railroad crossings and the St. Lucie River railroad bridge. One to two passenger trains will be passing over the bridge per hour.
