What’s next in the South Shore issue

From The Michigan City News-Dispatch

MICHIGAN CITY – Whether the 11th Street corridor or northern Amtrak route is the best for the South Shore commuter train continues to be a contentious issue heading into the new year.

It comes down to who’s defining “best” and who will fund additional engineering studies and, ultimately, the South Shore realignment.

The City Council passed a resolution Dec. 1 supporting the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District’s desire to move ahead with engineering studies. Both possible rail routes for the South Shore will be examined.
