Construction crews are in the process of preparing the site for the foundation work, which is expected to begin in the coming weeks, the company said.

The first concrete foundations are expected to be poured along the western side of the rail line. The foundation work will ultimately form the base of the structure that will hold the station’s escalator and elevator.

The concrete foundation that will support the station’s lobby is expected to be poured during the first quarter of 2016, the company said.

All Aboard Florida’s Brightline rail service plans to run 32 trains a day along the Florida East Coast Railway tracks with stops in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando. The company plans to launch service between Miami and West Palm Beach in 2017. The West Palm Beach-to-Orlando span is expected to begin by the end of 2017.
