Industrial Park Could Spur Added Hiawathas

A planned industrial park in Wisconsin may be an impetus for expanding Amtrak’s Hiawatha Service.

The Milwaukee Transportation Review Board will review an idea to add three additional roundtrips for the benefit of the Foxconn Technology Group industrial park, which expected to have a large workforce.

The departments of transportation of Wisconsin and Illinois, along with Amtrak have already been studying expanding the Chicago-Milwaukee service, which is expected to cost $200 million.

The Amtrak station at Sturtevent, Wisconsin, is one to two miles from the $10 billion Foxconn site, which could employ up to 13,000 people.
