NEW JANESVILLE ROAD CORRIDOR JANESVILLE ROAD WILL BE JAMMIN
The city of Muskego and the Waukesha County Department of Public Works are reconstructing Janesville Road (CTH L). The project employs context-sensitive design in an urban corridor. The project involves the reconstruction of a 2.5-mile section of Janesville Road from Racine Avenue to Moorland Road through downtown Muskego. Due to increased demand, Janesville Road is being expanded to a four-lane divided roadway with sidewalks on both sides of the road, curb and gutter, a new storm sewer system will run the entire length of the roadway.
The Chamber of Commerce, along with the city of Muskego, spearheaded “Jammin’ on Janesville,” which is a series of events, on the first Fridays of the summer months, to promote business along the Janesville Road corridor, especially during the Janesville Road reconstruction. Although the street will be open during the three events, parking will be tight, so a free shuttle will take visitors to stops all along the road.
Support local business during construction and beyond. The mission of Jammin’ on Janesville is:
To showcase the city of Muskego and all its businesses in a fun, personal, interactive manner, creating a lively and engaging event for the community.
As we make our way through seasons of road construction, we will do well to recognize how the efforts of many business owners, the Chamber of Commerce, the city of Muskego and our caring community will result in great progress for those of us who choose to live, work and play in this uniquely beautiful city.
Our Muskego business community will benefit for many years from the work being completed along Janesville Road, and the efforts, partnerships and cooperation put forth by many through Jammin’ on Janesville.
