NOW: Wires being put in place for Milwaukee’s streetcar

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- More progress is being made on Milwaukee's new electric-powered streetcar.

It draws electricity from an overhead contact system with a wire, supporting poles and substations along the route.

Those overhead wires are now in place.

Utility work continues this week along Milwaukee Street at Kilbourn Avenue, followed by more track construction.
