Petitioning Mr. John Winkle Federal Railroad Administration and 2 others

Stop All Aboard Florida from using the FEC train tracks. They should build new tracks west of our towns without the use of U.S. Government backed loans or funds.


If AAF is allowed to utilize the coastal rail tracks as planned, there will be an additional 32 passenger trains per day through our coastal towns and over our old bridges, including three major marine bridges;  The New River, Loxahatchee and St. Lucie River.  There will be an increase in noise pollution, traffic congestion and major safety concerns in our coastal towns.  It is predicted many homes and businesses that are impacted by the train will have a decrease in value.  AAF will cause longer commutes to work and could affect emergency response times.  The projected number of trains is up to 50 freight and passenger trains per day!  Freight is projected to increase with longer trains/more freight trains.  AAF=All About Freight! AAF should not use any taxpayer money for this "private" venture.  AAF needs to change their course from Miami to Orlando!
