Second GM brick giveaway takes place Saturday in Janesville


JANESVILLE (WKOW) — Blackhawk Community Credit Union is sponsoring a second giveaway Saturday, Aug. 10, of additional bricks from the former GM Janesville Assembly plant.

GM bricks will be distributed beginning at 7 a.m. at the former Moose Lodge at 2701 Rockport Road, according to a news release.

The Janesville Police Department and Rock County Sheriff’s Office are assisting with traffic control in the area.

No parking will be allowed on the north side of Rockport Road from Crosby Avenue, west to Highway 11.

Traffic entering the property for bricks must enter from the west and can stage on Rockport Road only all the way to Highway 11.


1)The staging line is Rockport Road only, and not the connecting arterial streets.

2) Park as far right as possible to allow vehicles to travel both directions on Rockport Road.

3) Do not block personal roadways or driveways to ensure accessibility by other motorists.

4) When in line, stay in your vehicle and activate the vehicle’s four-way flashers.

5) Overnight parking on Rockport Road is highly discouraged. Darkness and congestion could create dangerous conditions on this rural roadway. Conditions will be monitored by law enforcement.

Once you enter into the parking lot you will be directed to one of the lines to receive your bricks.

There will be multiple lines to speed up the distribution.

People can receive a maximum of 3 bricks per vehicle — one smokestack and two standard bricks, along with certificates of authenticity.
