Electrical Issues Sparked Delays

Share this post

Electrical problems caused significant delays on the South Shore Wednesday morning. Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District officials say it appears there was an issue with a substation in the Ogden Dunes area that may have been the result of a problem from an outage Sunday.  Authorities say a NIPSCO high-voltage conductor splice failed, and dropped onto the State Road 49 bridge over the commuter rail line.  Yesterday morning, NICTD says there may have also been residual damage to a lightning arrestor.  The disruption during Wednesday morning's rush hour affected service between Michigan City Carroll Avenue and East Chicago.
