The Hop comes in handy for drivers looking to stay off snowy roads
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Hop streetcar came in handy in Milwaukee for drivers looking to stay off the snowy roads.
Cole Starr jumped on to visit the Public Market.
“I didn’t want to have to shovel my car out of the snow or anything,” he said. “It’s not worth the hassle, the conditions, the safety.”
Milwaukee’s Department of Public Works had 300 pieces of equipment working to clear snow.
The goal is to have every street cleared by 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Wintertime activities were still on the table for some people despite the weather.
Linda and Todd Baur drove from Kenosha to Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward Monday simply to check out the ice bars.
“If you dress for it, you can actually enjoy it, and instead of staying in your house all winter you can actually come out and enjoy what Wisconsin has to offer,” Linda Baur said. “This is who we are in the winter. We have four seasons and that’s why we’re the best state.”
To help the DPW do its work, drivers can follow alternate side parking rules. People are asked to park on the even-numbered side of the street Monday night.
