Miami-Dade exploring rail link to the American Dream mega-mall

Miami-Dade officials have begun talks with a company tied to the All Aboard Florida railway about expanding a different set of tracks to the site of a massive mall theme park planned near Miami Lakes.

The preliminary talks involve cargo tracks serving rock-mining quarries in western Miami-Dade being extended north along Florida’s Turnpike until they get close enough to serve American Dream Miami, the 200-acre entertainment and shopping complex that would be the largest mall in the United States. The existing cargo rail already connects to other rail lines that link up near Miami International Airport, a hub where both Metrorail and Tri-Rail run trains throughout the region.
