South Shore Line - Double Track Feedback
Make your voice heard, and be entered to win a Save the Dunes gift basket!
Save the Dunes is working to engage with Northwest Indiana municipalities to protect our natural areas in anticipation of upcoming regional growth spurred by the South Shore Line's Double Track project.
Your participation in this brief survey helps inform our work, and will shape the message we take to municipal leaders regarding what is important to community members. As Northwest Indiana undergoes infrastructure upgrades and population expansion in nearshore communities, it is essential that, as a region, we are prepared for the expected increase in development and potential impacts on surrounding natural resources.
Thank you for helping to protect our natural areas by providing your input!
What is the Double Track Project?
The Double Track project includes proposed improvements to the South Shore Train Line traveling approximately 25 miles through Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties, and the communities of Gary, Portage, Ogden Dunes, Dune Acres, Beverly Shores, Pines and Michigan City, Indiana. The project’s main component is to add a second track to the single-track route, and move the street-running tracks along 10th and 11th Streets in Michigan City. This will allow the South Shore Line to add trains for more frequent service, reduce delays and improve travel times by the end of 2023.
