This article from UrbanMilwaukee.com was published on December 18th so it is a little older, however it does provide a little more detailed summary of where the project is including when the first vehicle will be delivered...

$65 Million Spent on Streetcar

Construction of the Milwaukee Streetcar is running ahead of schedule. Track work on the system’s first phase, which connects the Lower East Side, East Town, Historic Third Ward and Westown neighborhoods, is 90 percent complete according to the city. Construction on the $128 million system is being led by contractor Kiewet Infrastructure. The city has spent $65 million on the project so far.

This article from UrbanMilwaukee.com is considerably older than one I just posted regarding the streetcar, but when I went back and viewed this forum I realized that no one had posted this news regarding the proposed BRT line in Milwaukee County:

Council Approves BRT Route Restrictions

Without a second of floor debate the Milwaukee Common Council unanimously approved restricting the use of dedicated lanes on a substantial portion of the county’s proposed East-West Bus Rapid Transit line.

The measure, which was co-sponsored by council members Michael Murphy and Robert Bauman, solidifies the stance that the city will not dedicate lanes on W. Bluemound Rd. west of N. Hawley Rd.

For those interested, we had an interesting conversation inside the Milwaukee threads about the relative potential of hybridizing the new tram line into a light rail line, using some of the same infrastructure and vehicles:
