$100M Grant to Benefit South Shore

A $100 million federal grant is expected to be given to the Northern Indiana Commuter District for development of the West Lake Corridor.

The 8-mile line between Hammond and Dyer would enable the South Shore Line to provide rail commuter service on a new route using in part a former Monon Railroad right of way.

South Shore President Michael Noland  expressed gratitude for the support of the Federal Transit Administration for the project.

FTA is also expected to award a small starts grant for construction of a bus rapid transit line in Indianapolis. That project is expected to cost $155 million.
