James Place permanently closed to through traffic
James Place in the City of Fort Atkinson is now CLOSED to through traffic to accommodate the redevelopment of the Public Works and Parks Operations facility. The Fort Atkinson City Council approved the permanent vacation of James Place at a meeting on Oct. 3, 2023.
The Department of Public Works has placed signage on both ends of James Place indicating closure. The closure of the route will be from Janesville Avenue to Talcott Street. Hilltop Road to the south and Rockwell Avenue to the north both represent easy access to Janesville Avenue and are a replacement for the James Place route.
