News conference Tuesday to explore proposals for eventual, extended streetcar routes
Several members of the Milwaukee Common Council and a member of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors will hold a news conference Tuesday.
Several members of the Milwaukee Common Council and a member of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors will hold a news conference Tuesday to make an important announcement regarding the proposed Milwaukee streetcar route, Alderman Terry L. Witkowski said.
“Mayor Barrett has mentioned how, once the streetcar line is established, it could be extended to serve other parts of the city beyond the downtown,” Alderman Witkowski said. “We think it’s worth exploring some of the ways that the line could eventually be expanded to become a fully multi-modal means of transportation.”
“Some from the outskirts of the city have asked why they should support a streetcar downtown,” Alderman Witkowski said. “The benefits of this project go far beyond the route, and reach all the way out to neighborhoods like mine on the far south side.”
