MILWAUKEE — A former railroad line that once served Milwaukee’s booming beer industry is getting a second run as a recreational trail.

The Beerline Trail is being extended through the Riverwest and Harambee neighborhoods. Not only will it serve walkers, runners, bikers, but it will support businesses along the trail.

Community leaders gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday morning.

“Let’s recapture our public spaces,” said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. “And let’s use them for families, let’s use them for people who want to get out for recreation, let’s do it in the safest way possible.”
