Contract Awarded in South Shore Project

The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District Board of Trustees has approved a $2.7 million contract for demolition work in Michigan City, Indiana, that is part of a project to double-track the South Shore commuter line.

Green Demolition of Chicago won the contract that is part of the project to build 17 miles of second main and remake Michigan City’s signature street running, including closing 21 grade crossings.

The new track, which will be laid between Michigan City and Gary, Indiana, includes four new bridges and eight new station platforms.

Work is expected to begin next summer if NITCD receives a Federal Transit Administration grant as expected in early 2021.
