Alder Zellers’ Updates

Madison Flooding Update for Wednesday August 29, 2018 Two PM

August 29, 2018 2:27 PM

We are incredibly fortunate that, although we had a severe weather forecast for our area last night, the majority of the rain went to the north and south of Madison. That meant that although there were some minor lane closures on the isthmus, there were no major traffic disruptions.

Lake Levels

Lake Mendota rose one inch during the night, as did Lake Monona, which is again at its historic high level.

Dane County manages the dam, and staff there are doing an incredible job.

  • Discharge at the Tenney Dam into the Yahara River through the isthmus will continue today. Residents and motorists should expect another episode with rising water.
  • Don't panic, nothing is wrong with the dam.
  • Given the consistent rain that we have had, this is expected to be an extended event.

Road & Bike Path Closures

  • We will notify residents of lane and street closures as soon as they occur.
  • We have closed the Britttingham Park bike path along North Shore Drive for critical construction work.
  • East Johnson Street remains closed between North Baldwin Street and Fordem Avenue.

Please continue to prepare

  • The city has sandbags filled and ready at 14 different locations throughout the city. We have had volunteers from the National Guard and local inmates assisting in the bagging along with City staff and hundreds of volunteers.
  • Stay out of flood water, it's not safe.

Events

City staff are working with organizers of events this coming holiday weekend, including the University's first home football game. UW officials have a website they are promoting with traffic issues and have reached out to all ticket holders. Taste of Madison is also planned for
this weekend and traffic and parking contingencies are being formulated.

Stay Informed

You can get full flood updates at cityofmadison.com/flooding. Thank you for utilizing this site. Area residents and visitors are better informed because of it. We have had over 323,000 webpage views on the site since it was developed for this storm event. At one point last week, we
had over 600 visitors to the City flood-related webpages at one time. These sites are being utilized!

There will be no press conference held tomorrow, Thursday, August 30, 2018.
