Traffic conditions and emergency updates in Dane/Green Counties

 Green County officials say HY 92 east bound and west bound lanes near the Green-Dane County border are now open.  Traffic was closed in the Belleville-Dayton area due to road damage and flooding over the past few days. 

UPDATE 12:26 p.m.

County roads around Broadhead  in Green County are beginning to be affected by flooding from the Sugar River, according to Green County Highway Engineer Chris Narveson.

Many roads between Broadhead and Albany are still topped by flood water. 

County HY X south of Belleville has water, and some fish, flowing over it. 

County HY C is expected to be re-opened by 4 p.m. today after being repaired due to the flooding, according to Narveson.

***************

UPDATE (WKOW) -- East Johnson Street is currently closed in both directions between North Baldwin Street and Fordem Avenue due to flooding at Tenney Park.

According to a news release from City Traffic Engineering, East Johnson St. will be closed until the water recedes, which could be anywhere from one to two weeks. Lake levels are expected to crest around Wednesday, August 29. That estimate could change depending on how many rain we receive in the coming days.

Drivers should avoid the area and use alternate routes.

Severe travel delays are expected during the morning and afternoon rush hours.

As changes develop, updated information will be available at cityofmadison.com/flooding.
