Contractor Hired for South Shore Extension Project

A contractor has been hired to be part of the team building an extension of the South Shore Line in Northwest Indiana.

Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives, through its subsidiary Ragnar Benson, will have a 30 percent interest in a joint venture with F.H. Paschen in the $550 million contract to build the 8-mile West Lake Corridor between Dyer and Hammond.

Groundbreaking on the project was held last week. When completed, the West Lake Corridor will offer direct service to downtown Chicago while other trains will connect in Hammond with South Shore mainline trains.
