The last of planned South Shore weekend service disruptions is set for this weekend ... from 2:30 a.m. Saturday through 3 a.m. Monday.
Stations affected by this outage include South Bend, Hudson Lake, Carroll Avenue and 11th Street in Michigan City, Beverly Shores, Dune Park, Portage/Ogden Dunes and Miller.
Regular weekend South Shore service will run between Gary Metro Center and Chicago.
During this weekend’s outage, Amtrak will stop three additional Wolverine trains in Michigan City, offering weekend service to and from Chicago. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL.
Planned outages this year allow for overhead wire upgrades between Michigan City and Gary. The $18 million, three-year project, will ultimately replace more than 100 miles of electrical conductors built in the 1920s.
