Let's just jump in the time machine and go back to the thirties and put Mr Flagler's FEC back in where US 1 is now. No US1, no conflict.

While it might be fun and interesting to think about this, such is absolutely not possible without a huge, huge expense. None of the bridges that remain are in any kind of shape to support anything much less the support of a light rail vehicle. The folks in Florida simply for the most part prefer their automobiles. Not practical at all.
