Current Street Closures on Isthmus due to Flooding

posted by iHeartMedia Madison News - 

From City of Madison Traffic Engineering:

Flooding as of 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 24. 

The following streets are closed:

  • E Johnson St—N Baldwin St to Fordem Ave
  • E Main St—S Dickinson St to Yahara River
  • E Mifflin St—N Blount St to N Paterson St
  • N Livingston St—E Washington Ave to E Dayton St
  • S Livingston St—E Washington Ave to Williamson St
  • Marston Ave—E Johnson St to Sherman Ave
  • N Brearly St—E Washington Ave to E Mifflin St

These streets are expected to be closed for an extended period—from one to two weeks or more.  This flooding is occurring due to rising lake levels backing up through the storm sewer.  Additional streets are expected to flood as lake levels rise over the next week. 

Traffic volume capacity has been severely reduced on the isthmus.  Extended travel delays are expected during the morning and afternoon rush hours.  Drivers should avoid travelling on the isthmus during peak travel times.
