All westbound trains will be stopped at Hegewisch, where there will be individual screenings. Law enforcement will use the canine patrol.
Passengers can expect significant delays. Any serious threat means the train will be halted and sent back to its origin.

The Northern Indiana commuter Transportation District said it would be a good idea to postpone travel during NATO.
