Congresswoman Moore Announces $26.6 Million in Funding for the Muskego Yard Improvement Project in Milwaukee

The funding will allow freight trains to bypass the Milwaukee’s main central bus and train station, improve freight flow through Milwaukee and increase the trips available between Milwaukee and Chicago on Amtrak’s Hiawatha service.

“The swift and efficient movement of people and cargo is key to any functioning transportation system. I am pleased that the State has won this grant, which will help better facilitate the flow of people and improve the flow of goods in this critical corridor. This project will also pave the way for an eighth daily round trip on Amtrak’s Hiawatha line, which continues to break ridership records and is one of the busiest routes in the nation. It brings me great excitement to see federal transportation dollars flowing that will directly benefit the city of Milwaukee and the region while improving transportation options. I was pleased to support this grant application and will continue to work to bring back federal dollars for transportation projects like these, which are a win-win for all,” said Congresswoman Moore.
