President and CEO Paul P. Skoutelas wrote. " Dedicated
funding for passenger rail is critical to realize these goals. "
At a regional level, officials in Virginia announced in late
March agreements had been signed between the commonwealth,
Amtrak and freight railroad CSX, that would
deliver rail improvements across the commonwealth
through the $3.7 billion Transforming Rail in Virginia plan.
The plan calls for the construction of a new bridge over
the Potomac River, doubling of Virginia-supported Amtrak
trains, increasing Virginia Railway Express service, establishing
the foundation for a Southeast High Speed Rail Corridor
and other significant rail investments.
While the pandemic paused some construction activities
on passenger rail projects, several have made notable
progress in recent months.
Brightline in Florida announced in May the 170-mile
extension between West Palm Beach station and Orlando
International Airport was 50 percent complete. Brightline
suspended service between Miami and West Palm Beach
early in the pandemic, but continues to build its system

out. When the Central Florida extension is complete, it will
connect Brightline's 235-mile network between Miami and
Orlando. Brightline says it has more than 1,000 construction
workers on multiple sites to complete the $4.2-billion
project by late 2022.
In Canada, the month of May brought several announcements
marking progress on passenger rail projects,
including the financial commitment from the government
of Canada to fund up to 40 percent of the province of
Ontario's four priority subway projects and up to 50 percent
of an 8.7-mile light-rail project in Hamilton. Across the
country, in British Columbia, construction began on the
Broadway Subway Project in Vancouver, which will extend
the SkyTrain Millennium Link approximately 3.5 miles.
New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA)
completed repair work to its F Subway Line tunnel under the
East River. The project wasn't the largest or most complicated
to deliver, but significant in that it was the last of MTA's 11
under-river tunnels damaged by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 to
be repaired and made more resilient against future storms.
