The South Shore Line will continue busing passengers Friday between its Michigan City and South Bend stations because of damage to a railroad bridge in Hudson Lake.

The commuter rail line began busing passengers Thursday morning after a garbage truck struck and damaged the bridge in Hudson Lake.

Repairs to the bridge could take a week to 10 days, representatives said.

Passengers should expect delays to trains scheduled to originate or terminate in South Bend because of the need to bus passengers between the stations, according to a message on the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District website.

The commuter rail lineĀ is urging people planning to take the South Shore westbound from the South Bend station to drive to the Carroll Avenue station in Michigan City, said John Parsons, spokesman for NICTD.
