The U.S. Department of Transportation has approved a loan for the South Shore double-track project.

The proposed boost to the improvement plan was given a boost from USDOT on December 22.

The Build America Bureau approved a $27.5 million Railroad Rehabilitation and Improvement Financing Loan. It goes toward part of the $649 million Double Track project that is meant to improve a 26.6 mile stretch of the South Shore between Gary and Michigan City.

Northwest Indiana Business reports that includes about 18 miles of double track, improvements at five stations, and more.
