The office of U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Indiana has released a short informational video on commuter rail expansion.
Both the short informational video and a longer version can be seen on YouTube by searching the video's title, "South Shore Rail Extension - The Time is Now!"
“I believe that expanding the South Shore Rail Line is a transformational opportunity for Northwest Indiana," Visclosky said. "Join me in connecting our great region to the Chicago economy and investing in the next generation.”
The South Shore extension would run eight miles from Hammond to Dyer. After that, extensions to Lowell and Valparaiso are planned.
