MILWAUKEE – The Hop streetcar in Milwaukee is inching towards enlargement.
The town’s redevelopment authority on Thursday, July 15 authorised $250,000 in spending for design work on a route extension by way of the Historic Third Ward and into Walker’s Level.
That route evaluation is simply step one towards a attainable future request for federal grants. In the meantime, the town has already filed a federal grant utility to increase the streetcar from the town’s intermodal station to the Wisconsin Middle.
Metropolis leaders hope to launch The Hop’s new “Lakefront” line by June 2022. That line will combine with the Couture excessive rise, which broke floor earlier this yr.
