South Shore Line Mid-Day Train Delays from May 2 – June 30, 2016

By: South Shore Line Last Updated: May 4, 2016

SouthShoreNICTDMonday through Friday mid-day trains may be delayed 20-30 minutes during the installation of higher speed crossovers between Dune Park and Hegewisch.

We will only issue text and e-mail alerts for any mid-day (non-rush hour) train that is running more than 30 minutes late.

However, we will update the station LED message boards with current delays in excess of 10 minutes.

Please arrive at your departing station at the scheduled time in the event delays are shorter than expected.

Crossovers enable trains to “crossover” from one track to another. Currently trains are required to travel at 15 mph when switching tracks. This upgrade will permit trains to travel at 40 mph improving safety and operational efficiency.

NICTD regrets any inconvenience while we make these improvements.
