2016 - 2017 Public Workshops

Thank you to everyone who attended the public hearings on October 11 and 12, 2017 in Gary and Michigan City. We also thank everyone who submitted formal public comments during the public comment window that ran from September 21,2017 through October 23,2017.

An Environmental Assessment (EA) and Section 4(f) Evaluation was prepared to analyze the effects of the proposed project on the human and natural environments in accordance with federal requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, and Section 4(f) of the U.S. Department of Transportation Act of 1966. All interested parties were invited to review the EA, attend the Open House Public Hearing, and provide comment on the DT-NWI project. The hearings were conducted in an open house format.

Even though the formal comment period is now closed, the South Shore Line welcomes your comments at any time (they will not be part of the formal record for the Environmental Assessment, however). To comment, click here.
