The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District’s (NICTD) existing South Shore Line (SSL) provides a vital transportation link that connects Northwest Indiana to Chicago and Cook County, Illinois. NICTD is proposing the West Lake Corridor Project as a southern branch extension of the SSL route to reach high-growth areas in Lake County, Indiana.
The West Lake Corridor Project has been registered with ISI’s Envision Sustainable Infrastructure Rating System. This system provides a holistic framework for evaluating and rating the community, environmental, and economic benefits of all types and sizes of infrastructure projects. Envision will provide sustainable best practices, as well as a structure to evaluate the project’s sustainability using a transparent system of metrics. The project team will use Envision to guide decisions, evaluate project benefits, set and meet sustainability goals, and ensure a transparent approach.
