Miami's New Downtown Train Station Going Vertical With Massive Concrete Pour

Gridics Staff March 04, 2016 Development Pipeline, Great Images

Last weekend, 550 truckloads of concrete were pumped into the foundations of the Florida East Coast Railway's future MiamiCentral Downtown Miami passenger train terminal, where Brightline trains will whiz in and out of Downtown on elevated viaducts. Taking over 18 hours, the big pour completed the foundations for the station itself, although not for a neighboring super tower to the south which will also be part of the project but is being built in another phase, and marks the beginning of vertical construction. Pylons, and formwork for additional pylons, some of which will hold up the viaducts, concourses, and other superstructure, were already visible above ground yesterday. Construction is moving at a rapid pace, with train service to begin in mid-2017.
