Project Overview

All Aboard Florida is part of the first phase of the Brightline express train service, connecting and transporting passengers from Miami to Ft. Lauderdale to West Palm. Baker plays a large role in the 9 acre project being contracted to build both the station and the Elevated Rail. The Station will connect to the Brightline with the Metrorail and Metromover and this portion of the work included the construction of over 200 pile foundations, including 3 large foundation mats for the overbuild towers. The Elevated Rail consists of 3 train track decks, where Baker’s scope included the foundations, columns and caps elevated 50 feet above the street, as well as the erection of the “I” Beams, which attached to various hammerhead columns and straddle bent beams to support a high speed train traveling at 80mph. This project was completed by our Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Florida, team.
