FTA Awards Grant for South Shore Project

The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District has been awarded a $49.4 million federal grant to help pay to double track the South Shore Commuter line.

The grant came from the Federal Transit Administration’s Capital Investment Grants program.

It was one of seven grants totaling $544.3 million that were awarded last week by the agency.

The CIG program provides funding for major transit infrastructure capital investments nationwide that help improve transit access.

The NICTD grant will be used on a project to install a second track for 26.6 miles between Gary and Michigan City, Indiana.

The project is in the engineering phase of the CIG program.
