Chessie Trail II will pick up where the current trail ends in NewPorte Landing and head south into downtown. Phase III, which will begin construction after the holidays, will begin near where the trail does a dog leg at East Shore Boulevard and head north along the old Chessie Railroad right of way, and then follow the South Shore Line west to Michigan City.

La PORTE — Construction is to begin soon on the next phase of a trail system that will ultimately connect La Porte to Michigan City, and on to Chicago and New Buffalo.

The La Porte Board of Public Works and Safety on Tuesday approved a contract with VS Engineering for preliminary engineering and property management for the Chessie Trail Phase III project.
