Milwaukee streetcar project
MILWAUKEE -- After years of debate, the Milwaukee streetcar has finally started construction. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett -- along with students from Bradley Tech High School -- held an event to kick of the rail work on Friday, April 7th.
Just before noon, the group celebrated the beginning of what will be a major project.
"Once the streetcar starts running, once you've got that transit, then the debate changes to how can we get this extended," said Barrett.
