Part of South Pontiac Drive closed for 1 month
JANESVILLE—The city of Janesville is announcing a month-long closure of part of South Pontiac Drive between East Milwaukee Street and Ruger Avenue.
Closure of the 10-block section of South Pontiac Drive starts at 8 a.m. Friday. Parts of the street will remain closed the entire month of August, according to a release.
The closure is for contract water utility construction, which has been scheduled in advance of a planned street resurfacing project next year.
The city plans to close the street in one-block sections, with the first closure affecting South Pontiac Drive between Ruger and Kenwood avenues.
Traffic will be detoured to residential streets located around the closures. Local access to the East Milwaukee Street and Nightside East city transit bus stops will remain open.
