SunRail Update

It’s time for a Seminole County update on the construction status of SunRail – a 61 mile commuter rail corridor running north-south from Volusia County through Osceola County with 5 stops in Seminole County. SunRail trains are scheduled to start running in spring 2014. To many drivers on Interstate-4 the hope is that it will create a ready alternative for those needing to move more safely, efficiently and quickly from home to work along the now congested I-4 corridor.
