Milwaukee Streetcar`s Lakefront Line Delayed By Construction Project

The Milwaukee streetcar`s lakefront line will continue to be delayed at least another year as city officials wait for a multimillion-dollar high-rise development to break ground.

Construction of the lakefront line, which would extend the city’s 2.1-mile streetcar system about another half-mile, is roughly two-thirds finished. The line is supposed to include a stop at the base of the Couture development project, which was first announced in 2012, but has yet to start.

The city received a $14.2 million federal TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grant in 2015 for the lakefront line because of the Couture`s transit hub. The federal grant requires the line to be operational by the end of 2020....


Ken Notes: MKE will have plenty of capital with the Couture and other new projects. It will be fun to "show off" during the Democratic national Convention. I need a Milwaukee developer or planer to guest in my radio show Saturday morning! Call me!!! 608.334.2174
