From The Real Deal: An administrative law judge Friday denied a challenge to the South Florida Water Management District’s decision to issue a permit needed to extend the planned Brightline passenger rail service from South Florida to Orlando.

The judge tossed out the challenge brought by Martin County, St. Lucie County and the Town of St. Lucie Village.

The administrative law judge’s action cleared the way for the South Florida Water Management District to issue a permit authorizing construction and operation of a storm water management system, modifications of certain culverts and bridges, and improvements to 23 roadway crossings between West Palm Beach and the northern border of St. Lucie County.
