South Shore Extension Work Could Start in October

Construction of an extension of the South Shore commuter line could get underway in October.

Work on the West Lake Corridor extension can get underway on that schedule if the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District can complete a grant agreement with the Federal Transit Administration in September.

The 8-mile line will link the South Shore at Hammond with Dyer, Indiana, and intermediate communities.

If construction of the line begins this fall it is expected to be completed by late 2024 with revenue service starting in early 2025.

The project is expected to cost $933 million of which $355 million will come from FTA grants.
