Eastbound I39/90 closed between Mauston and Lyndon Station

 The Wisconsin State Patrol says there is a possibility I-39/I-90 might be shut down in both directions if flood waters continue to rise between Mauston and Lyndon Station, according to the Wisconsin State Patrol. 

As of 1:30 p.m., the eastbound lanes of the interstate are still shut down because flood water is flowing over the eastbound lanes near mile-marker 72. 

Eastbound traffic is being diverted at Mauston.

However, the water is beginning to fill in the median ditch between the east and westbound lanes, according to the State Patrol. 

If this situation continues and water rises high enough to start flowing over to the westbound lanes, that whole section of the interstate could be shut down.

As of now, the westbound lanes of I-39/I-90 remain open.

WKOW will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they develop.

MAUSTON (WKOW) -- Flood water running over the eastbound lane of I-39/I-90 has shut down a portion of that highway between Mauston and Lyndon Station. 

The Wisconsin State Patrol ordered the shutdown around 12:30 this afternoon. 

Eastbound traffic is being turned around near the 72-mile marker using the median cross-over, according to the State Patrol . 

So far, westbound traffic is not affected by floodwater but slowdowns are expected as the turn-around traffic from the eastbound lane merges with westbound traffic.

Eastbound traffic is being diverted off the Interstate at Mauston, then onto HY 12 east to Lyndon Station where traffic can get back onto I-39/I-90 eastbound.
