Golden Glades Tri-Rail Station (8 hours)
How do you design a great transit-oriented development and a multi-modal center at the same site? I-95’s Golden Glades Interchange is the meeting point for Tri-Rail, Greyhound Bus, Miami-Dade Transit and Broward County Transit. Currently a combination of transit operations, parking and bus shelters is located on a 30-acre site owned by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) that is adjacent to the Interchange. The site also borders several local cities and is surrounded by a challenging roadway network. FDOT is juggling all of these issues as it looks toward a potential future of joint development. Come help envision the future of the site at this all-day event.

Lake Worth Tri-Rail Station (10 hours)
Creating a great plan for your rail station area requires careful collaboration -– and many questions -– among a variety of technical disciplines, public agencies and citizen stakeholders. How, for example, do you decide how much land should be set aside for parking versus joint development? How large should the rail facility be and how can you reduce its negative impacts? How can the station area support more walking? And finally, what is the right amount of density? Participants will apply these and other questions to Tri-Rail’s Lake Worth Station, located in a progressive city in central Palm Beach County. Adjacent to Interstate 95, the station is surrounded by low-rise, multi-family housing, a 200-acre industrial park and a large municipal park. It is bordered by a high school, historic downtown Lake Worth, the emerging Florida East Coast Railway Corridor, and a direct ocean connection at the Lake Worth Pier. Please join us for this all-day, interactive workshop.
