KENOSHA — The Kenosha transit system is expected to suspend service earlier than normal beginning Tuesday due to protests in the area.

Since the shooting in Kenosha on Sunday, protesters have taken to the streets to demand justice. With these protests, came a curfew from the city of 8 p.m.

Now, because of the curfew, the Kenosha area transit system will suspend all operations at 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

Additionally, buses will begin at 8 a.m. instead of the normal 4:55 a.m. Wednesday through Friday. Saturday they will begin at 9 a.m. The last bus will depart from downtown at 3:30 p.m. daily. These changes will be in place until Monday, Aug. 31.

Due to protests in the area, Kenosha's City Hall will be closed to all walk-ins through Friday and access will be limited to customers with appointments.

If you need to visit City Hall at all during the rest of the week, the city of Kenosha is asking you to make an appointment with a specific department.
