Newsclip®: [Business] South Shore gets OK to begin work to try to add 2nd track -

"(AP) — The operators of the South Shore commuter rail in northwest Indiana announced Thursday they have received federal approval to begin doing studies for a proposed $210 million project to add a second track to a 25-mile stretch between Gary and Michigan City. The Federal Transit Administration's approval shows that the plan is viable and will improve transportation in the area, said Michael Noland, general manager of the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District. Reaching the project development stage puts the agency on a two-year clock to complete the preliminary engineering and environmental studies needed for the project to be rated and become eligible for 50 percent federal funding.",
