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.
