Anyone who has ever been in Chesterton or Porter for any length of time understands the importance of the Porter Junction project to get trains moving faster through that bottleneck.
The long-delayed Indiana Gateway rail project will be kicked off by Gov. Mike Pence and other officials on Thursday, which will lead to $71.4 million in construction projects during the next two years.
The long-delayed Indiana Gateway rail project should get underway this year, with a kick-off for the $71.4 million in rail improvements tentatively set for May, according to a top Indiana transportation official.
It has been nearly two years since federal funding was granted for the a high-speed rail project in Northwest Indiana, yet no construction has begun yet. It's time to get this project moving.
PORTER | A congested rail junction in this town now holds the key to unlocking the potential of more than half a billion dollars in federal high-speed rail funds.
VALPARAISO | The $71.4 million Indiana Gateway at Porter Junction is one of the Federal Railroad Administration's top five priority high-speed rail projects, but work will not begin until there's a deal for fixing the Englewood crossing in Chicago, Administrator Joseph Szabo said.
A future high-speed rail line passing through Northwest Indiana just became $196.5 million faster with the Obama administration's granting Monday of more than $2 billion for such projects in the Northeast, Midwest and California.
