Coral Gables-based All Aboard Florida —  which already started work on the first phase of the intercity train from Miami to West Palm Beach — has been awaiting the FRA’s draft statement of environmental impact in order to move forward with construction on the project’s second phase. Phase 2 is set to continue the 235-mile railroad into Orlando International Airport.
