South Shore Railroad projects not rated yet in federal budget blueprint

CHESTERTON, Ind. (WNDU) - Things for the South Shore Railroad improvement project could be better, and could be worse.

The Double Track and West Lake Corridor projects did not receive a rating in the budget blueprint handed down by the Trump administration.

It's because the railroad is still studying the environmental impact of the projects.

Both remain eligible for funding in the 2019 federal budget.
