The Hialeah Market Station this spring will become the new stop for American Airlines employees and others who take Tri-Rail to Miami International Airport.
Sun-Sentinel.com reported on Friday the change will take place in about two months when Tri-Rail closes its Miami Airport Station, the last station on the south end of the line, to help speed up construction of a new station just east of the airport.
The new station will be part of a sprawling complex called the Miami Intermodal Center, a $1.7 billion travel hub that includes a rental car center that opened in July 2010.
The Florida Department of Transportation says it can save $11 million in construction costs and money spent on flagging crews plus finish the new station two years sooner if the current airport station is closed.
