They must have shut down already - haven't seen one in a few hours.  I was wondering who was even riding them in the first place during this time other than "essential" personnel.

Gonna be a lot quieter here at "MH" Tower south...

Probably saving itself some money while it is shutdown. Maybe it can get more construction done without the train interference.

Full refunds for the passengers. 250 (out of 300) employees laid off.

The Sun-Sentinel (Fort Lauderdale's paper) adds the important detail that construction will continue on the line's current projects. There's work going on in Cocoa, along the Treasure Coast, in the Orlando area.

Tri-Rail, which runs parallel to BrightLine in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties, will continue operations as normal.  Palm Beach county local bus service is now free. Boarding is required through the rear doors, except for folks who require the wheelchair etc lift

If construction requires any N95 masks, construction should stop.

And I hope there is running water, soap, and paper towels to wash hands.

I've never seen track or civil construction done with masks.

Joe, you keep mentioning this non-issue wrt construction.
Don't worry, Pornhub is donating 50,000 masks to hospitals. Why don't you find out where they are getting their masks and get back to us?

They are used where silica dust is a concern. Concrete cutting is one example.
