Events

Lake County on Track is a collaborative effort among the following organizations to share information about the South Shore Line’s projects – West Lake extension and double tracking. Lake County on Track’s corporate sponsors are NIPSCO and Peoples Bank.

Regional Civic Engagement

Through collaborative partnerships One Region will take action to share information about regional projects. In 2017, One Region will focus on the South Shore Rail Line’s Double Tracking and West Lake Corridor Projects.

Why Now?

Improvements in our commuter rail system will drive population and economic growth. Average household income of South Shore riders is $82,000, which is nearly double the state’s median income. Currently, NWI residents employed in Chicago bring $427 million in personal income and $14 million in sales and income taxes to Indiana annually. An improved and larger commuter system will bring even more money and people to our region.
