May 2nd. 2016 "BrightLine" Construction Update
Downtown West Palm Beach station :

Downtown Fort Lauderdale station :

^In the distance is the FEC
railroad Bascule bridge (the New River that bisects downtown FTL from east to West ) that many in FTL are complaining about that needs to be raised multiple times of days in the future due to BrightLine's trains crossing.

Poor "wealthy sailors" in Ft. Lauderdale ! They have to wait for railroad draw bridge openings ! :D

Downtown Miami Central station :

The elevated 50+ feet columns rising and the train platforms for Brightline and Tri-Rail Commuter trains currently U/C :

^ Above is the Miami Metrorail / MetroMover station on the lower left which will connect with the Brightline Station U/C right above it , the building with the 3 "White bubbles" is the NAP Center of the Americas & the empty lots is part of the 29 acre "Miami World Center" that has just started construction.

^ Looking South towards Brickell

^ Looking SW with Brightline's station rising , the Metrorail cars in Pink & Green in the mid-ground & then the brutalist 510 foot tall Miami-Dade Government Center Building that is built like a nuclear shelter & hurricane proof !

I'm not really worried about this since Tri-Rail officials have found a way to finally bring the commuter trains directly to downtown Miami.

Thanks to some last-minute legal maneuvering — and Tri-Rail’s decision on Friday to borrow money to close a $20 million funding gap — plans for a downtown Miami station are now once again chugging along.

“The project’s too important for the region, certainly to Miami-Dade, certainly to the city of Miami,” said Jack Stephens, executive director of the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA), which runs Tri-Rail. “So it had to happen, but we had to figure out a way to make it happen.”

By the end of 2018, Tri-Rail’s downtown Miami station should be operating — ferrying commuters from north Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. Tri-Rail passengers who want to get to downtown currently have to transfer to Miami-Dade’s Metrorail line in Hialeah, an inconvenience that makes it harder to convince commuters to abandon their cars.

Your link did have a nice pic of the Miami Central Station Under Construction in downtown Miami though :
