The Milwaukee Street bridge is under construction in downtown Janesville in this Aug. 26, 2019, photo. The area around East Milwaukee and North Main streets will be closed to traffic Wednesday so work crews can pour the bridge deck.


Parts of East Milwaukee Street and North Main Street will be closed from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, for Milwaukee Street bridge work.

Milwaukee Street will be closed from Main Street to Parker Drive, and Main Street will be closed from Milwaukee Street to near Wall Street to make room for trucks and other large equipment.

Construction crews will pour the new concrete deck for the Milwaukee Street bridge that day. Curb parking and through traffic will be restricted.

The work also will interfere with some bus routes, including the 4: West Court Street, 6: BJE-Healthcare and the evening West Court Street special route. The Olde Towne Mall bus stop will be temporarily closed, so passengers should use the stop near the Garden Court apartments.
