Oct 1, 2019

This week on “Building Northwest Indiana Radio” host Kevin Comerford of the Construction Advancement Foundation talks with Bill Hanna, President and CEO of the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority.

This week on “Building Northwest Indiana Radio” host Kevin Comerford of the Construction Advancement Foundation continues his conversation with Bill Hanna, President and CEO of the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority, to discuss the Northwest Indiana Double Tracking Project.

This project plan details proposed improvements to the South Shore Line traveling approximately 25 miles through Lake, Porter and La Porte Counties, and the communities of Gary, Portage, Ogden Dunes, Dune Acres, Beverly Shores, Pines and Michigan City, Indiana. The project’s main component is to add a second track to the single-track route, and move the street-running tracks along 10th and 11th Streets in Michigan City. This will allow the South Shore Line to add trains for more frequent service, reduce delays and improve travel times.

Tune in to find out how this project will enhance quality of life for Northwest Indiana residents during Morning Edition, Regionally Speaking and All Things Considered on Lakeshore Public Radio – 89.1fm or streaming online at Lakeshorepublicradio.org
