The MR-MICCI project will evaluate improved track connections across the Miami River, including bridge, track, and signal upgrades. This project will improve SFRC capacity for Tri-Rail and freight trains, potentially accommodate new Amtrak intercity rail service accessing the MIC, and improve connections between rail and air travel. Extensive study coordination will occur among numerous transportation partner agencies. This project is included in the Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization’s 2035 Long-Range Transportation Plan.
• Improve connectivity to MIA and associated employment centers.
• Improve passenger access to the MIC and its numerous transit connections.
• Relieve potential bottlenecks for Tri-Rail, Amtrak, and freight services.
