City of Madison Flooding Update

March 14, 2019 2:30 PM

City of Madison staff have been monitoring area roads and low lying areas for the past several days in anticipation of rising water in some areas.

South Point Road, on the City's far west side is experiencing high water and motorists are being advised to avoid that stretch of roadway. Northbound South Point Road is closed at Harvest Moon Road and southbound the road is closed just south of Fire Station 12.

As the water recedes, the road will be reopened.

Engineering staff are continuing to clear many of the City's 20,000 storm drains so melting snow can escape the roads. Residents are being asked to check the storm drains and clear them of snow and ice.

Lake levels of Lakes Mendota and Monona have not risen to hazardous levels and are not expected to. Engineering staff continues to work with Dane County employees to monitor those levels as well. Flooding concerns are centered on roadways where melting snow cannot reach a storm drain.
