Tracks have been laid for the Brightline/Virgin Trains USA terminal at Orlando International Airport

Orlando International Airport has been getting major upgrades, resulting in a lot of raw dirt, construction vehicles and traffic cones, but under conditions eased by the pandemic’s reduction of travelers and traffic.
Virgin Trains has laid tracks at its airport station, the first such installation of rail along the passenger train’s 170-mile extension from West Palm Beach, and the region’s expressway authority has begun to overhaul the airport’s front entrance, a complex and congested meeting of state roads 436 and 528.
The rebuilt intersection will do away with an obsolete design, bringing a modern look, more lanes and seven new bridges, including four long, tall ones fittingly referred to – given the aviation neighborhood – as a “flyover.”
The Virgin project is installing 3.5 miles of railway through an obstacle course of shuttle trains, baggage carts, roads, taxiways, swamps and lakes, all adding up to an intricate task described as threading a needle for a 500-ton, higher-speed train.

It really worries me that Covid-19 might slowly kill brightline. The travel industry has not only been devastated by this but it will not bounce back quickly but slowly. I do hope Brightline can survive that.
Yes, they will survive. I really hope they will resume service again for next March 2021. I doubt that. Let see what happens.
