TOD Evaluation Along the CSX East-West Rail Corridor

The purpose of the Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Evaluation along the CSX East-West Corridor Study is to identify the land use measures necessary to promote TOD at identified station areas located on the Lehigh spur, also known as the CSX East-West Railroad Corridor, in the effort to advance a viable premium transit corridor.

This study serves as a continuation to a previous effort, the CSX East-West Rail Feasibility Study (referred to as the Feasibility Study), completed in March 2016 by the Miami-Dade Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). This study examined the feasibility of operating passenger rail service on the CSX East-West Corridor.
