MARTIN COUNTY AWAITS RESPONSE FROM U.S. CONGRESSMAN BRIAN MAST REGARDING THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BRIDGE OVER ST. LUCIE RIVER. This new modern railroad bridge would boost the marine industry but would also support Virgin Trains' high-speed passenger rail, which Mast has long opposed.
As beneficial as the bridge may be to the marine industry, those benefits do not weigh against the amount of support Virgin Trains will receive. Let us also not forget who owns the FEC bridge and tracks - Grupo Mexico.
