Brightline is testing trains up to 79 mph this week along a rail corridor in southern Indian River County.

The testing corridor is about 8 miles between Indrio Road and north Vero Beach. Tests will be conducted 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Saturday, and drivers should expect longer wait times at affected crossings as the trains pass, according to a news release from Brightline.

Brightline trains will travel up to 110 mph along parts of the Treasure Coast once it completes extension of its pspanssenger-rspanil service from West Palm Beach to Orlando this summer. During this week’s tests, the railroad will have flaggers stationed at affected crossings, according to the news release.
