NICTD gets grant for track project
The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District has received a matching grant for its South Shore double tracking project. The $1.6 million grant from the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority will help fund preliminary engineering and environmental work. The preliminary analysis, which will cost a total of $4 million, must be completed before the NICTD can seek funding from the Indiana Department of Transportation for the double tracking project. The NICTD is seeking additional funding from other partners in the region. The double tracking project will add a second full track to the South Shore line from Gary to Michigan City, which the NICTD says will greatly reduce commuting times two and from Chicago.
