City Officials Warn of Hazardous Roads (8-20-18 - Evening Alert)

August 20, 2018 9:10 PM

I wanted to share this news alert that the Mayor's Office just sent out. Please be safe!

 

City Officials Warn of Hazardous Roads
Madison City Engineer Rob Phillips and staff report that there are extreme hazards throughout the west side of Madison with flooded roads. Street flooding is occurring at multiple locations and appear to be more numerous on the west side of Madison. The public is asked not to drive this evening. In addition to the rain that has already fallen, an additional 1" to 2" of rain is possible. The following locations are known to be flooded currently however additional locations are possible.


McKenna Blvd in the area of Elver Park – Hammersley Rd to Schroeder Rd
Mineral Point Rd in the Gammon Rd area
Mineral Point at Junction Rd
Odana Rd in the Grand Canyon Dr area
Old Sauk Trails Office Park Area - Deming Way / Excelsior Dr / Fourier Dr
Pleasant View Rd at Valley View Rd

In addition, rain this evening could flood streets that have drained down from earlier today.

It is nearly impossible to judge the depth of water on roadways, especially at night. Only a few inches of rain can cause automobiles to float. Madison Police and Fire officials warn motorists to stay safe and stay inside if at all possible.
