The complaints keep coming in to the folks behind the All Aboard Florida project.
Don Robinson is the President and Chief Operating Officer of the high speed rail line planned to run from Miami to Orlando, with stops in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale.
He tells us some of the concerns from residents throughout the corridor.
"You know, 'we'll have 16 trains leaving from Miami and 16 trains leaving from Orlando. There's going to be traffic gridlock, etcetera.' So we have an animated video that essentially says by the time the gates go down, the train crosses and the gates go back up, it's approximately 46 seconds."
Some communities, many along the Treasure Coast, have come out in opposition to the project. We asked Robinson if he thinks some of that may be because there are no stops in the Martin through Indian River Counties area. He says he believes that may be somewhat at play, but also that people seem to have what he calls a "freight train" mentality. This, he says will be nothing like a freight train when it rolls through 32 times a day.
There has also been a misunderstanding about the All Aboard Florida project when it comes to the taxpayers. Robinson says that taxes are not being used to fund the rail line's construction or operation.
"We are a privately funded group." He does note, however, "We are applying for a federal RRIF (Railroad Rehabilitation and Improvement Financing) loan, which is a loan that the Federal Railroad Administration issues."
We asked Robinson flat out, "Is there any scenario in which you could see this project not coming to fruition?" Here was his reply.
"It's privately funded, privately operated on privately owned land. We can do this without the federal RRIF loan if needed."
Last week, All Aboard Florida unveiled the design for their West Palm Beach station, which will be located between CityPlace and City Hall. It's being described as a sleek, modern look with shops and restaurants on the second floor.
