Supplemental Safety Measures Installed Along Rail Corridor

Brightline Supplemental Safety Measures Installation - March 2018

Additional Supplemental Safety Measures (SSMs) were installed at multiple crossings along the FEC rail corridor in March. Crossings with exit gates are sometimes referred to as "quad gates" because gates come down from all four corners when a train approaches, preventing violators from taking the risk of going around closed gates. When the installation is complete, local governments will have the option to take the final steps to establish Quiet Zones through their communities.
