A new SunRail station platform takes shape next to the iconic LYNX Central Station in downtown Orlando. Crews lay out the forms for the station platform foundation. The SunRail station there offers a glimpse at the transportation connectivity and development potential of SunRail, with the site promising to serve as a hub of future rail expansion. The SunRail commuter rail transit project will run along a 61-mile stretch of existing rail freight tracks in Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties. The 31-mile first phase will serve 12 stations, linking DeBary to Orlando. Phase II will serve five additional stations, north to DeLand and south to Poinciana. Service is expected to begin next year.
