Milwaukee DPW trucks on display at Miller Park

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- As Milwaukee Brewers fans tailgated before Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, many couldn't help but notice three big Department of Public Works trucks parked outside Miller Park.

"Some people think there`s a construction project going on, but they're very curious. They like to poke their nose in and around and that`s what we want. We want people to ask questions," says Milwaukee Department of Public Works Communications Specialist Sandy Rusch Walton.

The Milwaukee Department of Public Works had its trucks on display for National Public Works Week.

It wanted to highlight the work DPW crews do, and the equipment they use to get the job done.

"All of these things are very necessary to keep the city moving, to keep the infrastructure up and running, to keep things repaired, keep the streets plowed, keep the garbage from overflowing," says Milwaukee Department of Public Works Fleet Manager Jeff Tews.

DPW officials were also on-hand giving out stickers and teaching people all of the things its crews are responsible for, that some may take for granted.

"If we didn't have any Public Works then a lot of things wouldn't happen, like in the winter Miller stadium probably wouldn't be open right now because the snow would still be melting," says 10-year-old Adrianna Rodriguez.

As kids and adults looked and even climbed on the trucks, they were amazed by their size and power.

Adding a little extra excitement, to an already fun day.
