Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Visclosky released the following statement in response to the Federal Transit Administration’s rating for the South Shore Rail Line West Lake project.

“This action taken by the Federal Transit Administration is outstanding news for the Northwest Indiana economy and would not have happened without the steadfast support of Governor Holcomb, Sen. Young and our federal representatives, our state representatives, Lake County and the 14 participating towns and cities, and the leadership of the RDA and NICTD.  As the appropriations process moves forward for Fiscal Year 2020, I will continue to support full funding for the Capital Investment Grant Program.  I will also continue to aggressively advocate for the same success for the Double Track project.  Today, our economic future has been brightened.”
