Double Track NWI Added to Federal Transit Administration Funding Recommendation List

The Federal Transit Administration put the South Shore Line’s two major projects — the West Lake Corridor and Double Track NWI — in its annual list of funding recommendations, a significant step in moving those projects forward. Double Track would be a new set of rails between Gary and Michigan City, along with new stations in Gary’s Miller area, Portage/Ogden Dunes and Michigan City. Its capital cost would be $321 million, plus $33.5 million for financing, for a $354.5 million total.
