SunRail won the approval of the Federal Transit Administration to link the train to the Orlando International Airport, the Orlando Business Journal reports.
The estimated cost is as much as $225 million. According to a release from Mica’s office, the Federal Transit Administration could make as much as $75 million available in grant money, with the remainder coming from state and local sources.
But do not look for construction, much less service, to start anytime soon.
The earliest the airport link could open would be 2020, experts say.
