AVENTURA, Fla. – Brightline has installed one of the final pieces of its Aventura station, a 131-foot-long skybridge that stretches across West Dixie Highway near Northeast 198 Street.
Once completed, the station across from Aventura Mall, will connect travelers in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. An expansion to Orlando is set for next year.
Trip time between downtown Miami and Aventura is expected to take about 15 minutes.
“The topping off of the Aventura station brings us one step closer to increasing mobility for northeast Miami Dade County,” said Mayor Daniella Levin Cava, Miami Dade County.
The Brightline station in Aventura is expected to open by the end of the year.
