Share this post

The Northwest Indiana RDA - Regional Development Authority - says they'll be making a major announcement concerning rail expansion this afternoon at their board meeting, which was rescheduled from earlier in the week.

Indiana Democratic Congressman Pete Visclosky's office this week released videos in support of an expansion of the South Shore line in the Region. Visclosky, in the video, says since 1970, the problem has been area youth, Northwest Indiana's children, leaving the Region when they grow up.
The full piece called "South Shore Rail Extension-The Time is Now!" is about five minutes long and can be accessed here: &feature=youtu.be">&feature=youtu.be. There's also a shorter piece that runs 37-seconds here:  &feature=youtu.be">&feature=youtu.be
“I believe that expanding the South Shore Rail Line is a transformational opportunity for Northwest Indiana. Join me in connecting our great region to the Chicago economy and investing in the next generation,” said Congressman Visclosky.
