The federal transportation secretary visited northern Indiana and attended events regarding an Indiana Toll Road improvement project and planned upgrades to the South Shore commuter railroad.

The Indiana governor's office said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao joined Gov. Eric Holcomb and other officials at the Aug. 29 events.

The first was a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Granger for $200 million in repaving and bridge repairs on the privately run Indiana Toll Road that started last year.

That will be followed by a meeting discussing plans for the South Shore line that links South Bend and Chicago. Federal funding is being sought to help pay for plans including a $290 million project to add a second track between Gary and Michigan City.
