TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – Four companies have submitted proposals to take over the Hoosier State rail line from Indianapolis to Chicago.

Federal funding for the line ran out last year. Several communities, including Lafayette and Tippecanoe County, are helping to fund the service.

Proposals from Corridor Capital, Herzog Transit Services, Iowa Pacific Holdings and Railmark Holdings are being considered. The State Highway Department is expected to announce the winner this summer.

INDOT says no disruption in service is expected as a result of the proposals.
