Combination snarls traffic
JANESVILLE-Holiday shoppers, two traffic accidents and faulty or obstructed traffic signals combined to create difficult traffic conditions on Janesville’s northeast side Saturday.
“We had an accident at Highway 14 and Milwaukee about 2:45, but most of the problem was just a lot of shoppers,” said Janesville Police Lt. Rick Larson. “There have been no unusual incidents, just a lot of traffic.”
A traffic accident earlier in the afternoon had Milton Avenue inbound from Highway 26 down to one lane near the I-90/39 intersection. Traffic was backed up north of the Kettering Drive intersection.
Traffic westbound on Highway 14 was backed up from Milton Avenue to I-90/39 near Pine Tree Plaza.
The traffic backups converged at the intersection of Highway 14 and Milton Avenue. At one point, motorists reported a problem with traffic signals at the intersection. Police reported no outages, but some traffic signals were still covered with snow from Thursday’s storm.
