Last weld ceremony

Last weld ceremony marks major milestone for The Hop

The Milwaukee community left its mark on a historic event on Monday, July 2 at a “last weld” ceremony for The Hop, presented by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino.

Hundreds of Milwaukee residents, business owners and dignitaries, including children from nearby Ebenezer Child Care Center, joined construction workers and city staff to celebrate the completion of construction on The Hop’s Main Line. All of the guests had the opportunity to sign their names to a commemorative piece of rail which will be put on display along the route later this summer.

“The substantial completion of construction is a cause for celebration and a major milestone on the path towards bringing streetcar service to our city,” Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said. “We’re so appreciative of the patience and support we’ve seen from downtown businesses and residents alike during the lengthy construction process.”
