Passenger Rail Advocates Support South Shore Line Plans


The Indiana Passenger Rail Alliance holds its monthly board meeting on March 23rd in Michigan City, and one of the discussion topics is the South Shore Line improvement plan for the commuter line running through that city.   

The IPRA supports moving the tracks to alongside city streets rather than their present location in the middle, along with the "double tracking" of the Line between Gary and Michigan City and the West Lake Corridor project. 

Steven Coxhead, the president of the IPRA, was on "Regionally Speaking" on Wednesday and here's the conversation.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
