If You Linger In The Palm Beach Area And Boca Raton

BOCA RATON, Fla. — Brightline broke ground Tuesday on a new station in Boca Raton.

The stop is set to be built across from Mizner Park, adjacent to the Boca Raton Public Library.

Patrick Goddard, Brightline's president, said he anticipates a significant number of riders will use the new station and that it will bring a huge economic boost to the area.

"We're hoping to open up Boca to a lot of people who wouldn't ordinarily of thought about it," Goddard said. "So, if you're in central Florida, making it so easy for people to get on a train and stop in Boca or get on in Miami and visit Boca."

The station comes at a cost, with a nearly $40 million price tag. The city of Boca Raton is contributing $9.9 million. But Goddard said the opportunities this could open up are priceless.

"We think it's a game changer," he said.
