SunRail Service Suspension Beginning Wednesday, November 9, 2022

ORLANDO, Fla– Due to Tropical Storm Nicole, the Florida Department of Transportation is suspending SunRail service beginning Wednesday, November 9, 2022. 

This Wednesday, crews will begin working to prepare the corridor to render it safe prior to the impending storm. Storm preparations include: 

  • Securing railroad gates at 126 railroad crossings on the 61.5-mile corridor, as well as the removal of longer railroad gates 
  • Inspecting and storing the SunRail train fleet 
  • Securing railroad equipment throughout the corridor 

After the storm, and when conditions stabilize, a complete inspection of the entire corridor is necessary to assess the storm’s impact and to prepare the system to reinstate rail service for SunRail, as well as freight and Amtrak operations. Restoration of service includes safety inspections, reinstalling gates, and removal of any obstruction on the railroad tracks. 

Please remember to exercise caution around trains and railroad crossings. Be smart. Be safe.
