River Street Reconstruction Begins Monday

A local street gets a major facelift.

The Wisconsin Department of transportation began a complete reconstruction of the area between West Court Street and West Racine Street on Monday.

While motorists will have to follow posted detours, pedestrian access, and access to the Janesville Transit Center will not be affected.

The project is expected to be completed by September 1st.
