CHESTERTON, Ind. The South Shore commuter rail line in northern Indiana will bus people between Michigan City and South Bend starting Monday until July 18 so crews can work on the overhead wires that power the trains.

South Shore officials say the buses will not stop at the Hudson Lake stop. They say train service between Michigan City and Chicago will not be affected except on July 15 and 17, when the busing will be extended for some midday trains between the Carroll Avenue and Dune Park stops.

South Shore officials say the work is needed because old rigid overhead wires are subject to failures that cause lengthy service disruptions. The new system will be identical to the one installed west of Michigan City several years ago.
