As the double-track project comes closer to completion, temporary busing will end between the Gary Metro Center and Dune Park stations come April 9. That means train service also will return to this segment of the Double Track Northwest Indiana project.

Busing began between the stations in February 2022 to allow for construction of the second track.

“We sincerely appreciate passengers’ patience and cooperation as we near the completion of double-track construction,” said Michael Noland, president of South Shore Line, in a press release. “Our commitment to convenient and reliable service for our riders has never wavered, and we invite everyone to participate in the grand opening of double-track service in less than two months.”

Train service will resume between the two stations April 9 using the schedule from October 2023. Stations that were temporarily relocated will return to their permanent locations, including the new Portage/Ogden Dunes and Miller stations.

The double track on the South Shore Line is part of the NICTD's 20-year strategic business plan. The project spans 25 miles through Lake, Porter and La Porte counties.

The South Shore Line is a commuter rail line operated by the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District between Millennium Station in downtown Chicago and the South Bend International Airport in South Bend.
