Wisconsin Department of Transportation  logo   Flooding Closes Several Highways in Wisconsin - Update

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) encourages drivers to be aware of changing travel conditions and “know before you go” with 511 Wisconsin, Wisconsin’s Travel Information website. Despite the recent sunny weather, WisDOT is actively monitoring Interstates in southern Wisconsin due to rising waterways.
 
High traffic volumes occur on the northbound lanes of I-39/90; I-90/94 and I-39 on Friday afternoon and during the evening. Peak traffic volumes on the southbound Interstate lanes occur on Sunday afternoon and evening. Delays are anticipated, and drivers are strongly encouraged to plan ahead and use alternate routes.

Lane closures are anticipated over the weekend on sections of the I-39/90, I-90/94 and I-39 corridors in Dane and Columbia counties as water levels gradually rise in the area. Motorists should be alert for crews and equipment and proceed with caution through all work zones.

Water is expected to crest during the weekend at the I-90/94 and I-39 interchange near Portage in Columbia County, which may require lane closures in this area.
 
Motorists are advised to continue checking 511wi.gov for information regarding statewide impacts.
