A federal judge is preparing his reply after a hearing this morning to temporarily halt a scheduled closure of the railway bridge over the New River in Ft. Lauderdale. The Feb. 11-23 maintenance project of the Florida East Coast Railway (FEC) railroad bridge would halt marine navigation to businesses to the west.
Nearly 100 shipyard owners, towing and repair companies and other marine businesses were in the courtroom to hear presentations from the attorneys for the plaintiffs, the Florida East Coast Railway (FEC), All Aboard Florida and U.S. Coast Guard.
Stay tuned for more details as they are released.
