Crown Point Mulls S Shore Expansion Pledge

Share this post

Add Crown Point to the list of Lake County communities heading toward setting aside funds for expanding the South Shore line to Dyer. Ten other communities, as well as the county itself, have already pledged a percentage of dollars from a new income tax toward the estimated 571-million dollar project. Indiana Congressman Pete Visclosky has been asking town and city councils in Lake County to earmark funds to extending the commuter line eight-miles south, and even though they haven't all done so yet, Visclosky recently announced there is enough support to continue moving forward. Construction could begin in about six years, with the first trains running along the new route in 2023.
