New Dune Park Platform to Open

Share this post

The east portion of a new high-level boarding platform at the busy Dune Park South Shore station at US 12 and State Road 49 in Chesterton is opening this month. Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District officials say the new platform will let passengers board the trains without having to climb stairs, which will be especially helpful for those with disabilities, the elderly, and families with strollers. It's also expected to reduce station "dwell time," the time a train needs to be at the station to serve passengers, taking a couple minutes off the stop. The four-million dollar project includes warming shelters and an overhead canopy that'll run the full length of the platform.
