Community Engagement Forum for the West Milwaukee Street Reconstruction Planned for January 23

Post Date:01/11/2018 11:01 a.m.

The City of Janesville is in the process of developing plans for the proposed reconstruction of West Milwaukee Street between Center Avenue and River Street.  The proposed project will consist of new pavement, curb and gutter, sidewalk, storm sewer, watermain, street lighting, and streetscaping elements.   Construction is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2020.

A Community Engagement Forum for the project will be held on Tuesday, January 23 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the City of Janesville Municipal Building (18 N. Jackson Street) in Room 416 on the 4th Floor.  A short presentation, which includes a basic overview of project concepts, will begin at 5:15 p.m. Representatives of the City of Janesville and project design staff will be available before and after the presentation to answer questions, explain exhibits, and provide additional information regarding the project. All community members are welcome and encouraged to attend.

The West Milwaukee Street Historic District and Memorial Park are within the project limits and considered public park areas [Section 4(f) properties and/or are listed on the National Register of Historic Places]. Impacts are not anticipated to these properties, but temporary easements may be needed to accommodate grading. 

The design team is seeking your input on any concerns that individuals may have on how the project is impacting these resources. Persons with a concern for or knowledge about historic buildings and structures and archaeological sites are encouraged to attend this meeting or provide comments to the local units of government or the consultant.

Wheelchair accessibility is available at the meeting site. Citizens who require a sign language interpreter may request one by contacting project staff through the Wisconsin telecommunication Relay System at 711 or 1 (800) 947-3529.
