Cedar Lake Earmarks Dollars for S Shore Extension

The Cedar Lake Town Council has agreed to pledge funding to extending the South Shore commuter rail south from Hammond to Dyer, with the option of opting out in the future. Council members voted five-to-two to set aside 15-thousand dollars this year, pending approval of an interlocal agreement detailing how financial support from the communities would work. Congressman Pete Visclosky has asked Lake County municipalities to earmark up to 30-percent of county income tax revenues toward the West Lake Corridor project. There's been talk of possibly taking the line as far south as Cedar Lake and Lowell down the line, though officials have said there are no guarantees.
