Council to study conversion of Court and Milwaukee Streets
As the City of Janesville studies future transportation, dramatic changes could take place.
The city is investigating whether to convert Court and Milwaukee Streets into two-way streets. In a city memorandum, Public Works Director Jack Messer says a study on the topic in 1994 appears to favor motor vehicle traffic and the ability to get vehicles through the downtown. He says that sacrifices parking, makes pedestrian traffic more difficult, and increases costs. The City Council discusses the street conversion at a special meeting Monday, and will decide whether to pursue a new study of the conversion.
