DOT Plans New Bridge to Accommodate Express Rail

A new bridge planned over I-4 just west of Kathleen Road would accommodate the express rail service proposed to run in the interstate median, Tampa Bay Business Journal reports. Like newer bridges over I-4, the updated CSX railroad bridge would accommodate both trains in the median and future expansion of I-4 traffic lanes. Virgin Trains USA, formerly called Brightline, is preparing a Tampa-Orlando express route that it says will eventually include a stop in Polk County.
