JANESVILLE, Wis. (WMTV) -- Traffic lanes are closed in the City of Janesville due to a water main break on Milton Avenue near Randolph Road.

Officials said Janesville Water Utility is repairing the water main, but due to the extreme cold weather and the location of the repair, officials had to close off traffic lanes in the area.

Northbound Milton Avenue is restricted to one lane between Black Bridge Road and Randolph Road. Northbound traffic should merge to the inside lane starting at Black Bridge Road.

The eastbound lanes are be closed on Randolph Road at Milton Avenue. This restricts the left-hand turn lane on southbound Milton Avenue, as well as the through traffic eastbound on Kennedy Road.

The City of Janesville said the lanes will reopen once the water main has been repaired.
