Town Hall Road Work in May

In the month of May, the City of Janesville will be resurfacing the portion of N. Harmony Town Hall Road that lies within the City.  Because this is a narrow road, we plan to detour traffic off the street while the work is in progress (see attached detour map).  The work will include milling butt joints, paving a new asphalt surface, and constructing aggregate shoulders.  This work should take approximately one week to complete.  Pavement markings will follow about 10 to 20 days after paving.       

Through traffic will be detoured around the work zone for the safety of both the motorists and the work crews.  The road will remain open to local traffic needing to access homes or businesses with the closure.  We have also contacted the school bus service for the Milton District to inform them of this project.
