The latest about All Aboard Florida in West Palm Beach...from the Sun Sentinel, click title for link:
It's demolition day Wednesday for All Aboard Florida as crews clear the way for construction of its West Palm Beach station.
Both the Sewell Hardware building and the Sasser Glass building will be razed for the station between Evernia and Datura streets, next to the Florida East Coast Railway tracks.
The work follows the knockdown of a strip center on the site of the future passenger rail line's Fort Lauderdale station two weeks ago.
It's full steam ahead for the project's first segment, which includes a station in downtown Miami. All three stations are expected to be completed a few months before passenger trains begin running between Miami and West Palm Beach by the end of 2016.
The next leg to Orlando is set to open in 2017.
