NICTD Takes Next Step in South Shore Expansion

Share this post

Trustees with the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District today unanimously approved hiring a Los Angeles company to develop a draft environmental impact study regarding the proposed South Shore expansion into south Lake County. The Times reports the study will examine all aspects of the project, including financing, which will eventually be part of an application to apply for federal aid, which could pay for half of the 571 million dollar project.
According to the article, the study could cost up to three-million dollars and take up to 18 months to complete. The company hired to develop the study, AECOM, was also hired in August 2010 to oversee the expansion project at the Gary/Chicago International Airport.
