Highway 41 reopened after heavy rain flooded roadway

OSHKOSH (AP) — Heavy rain and flooding temporarily closed part of a heavily traveled route in eastern Wisconsin.

Both lanes of Highway 41 were closed from Highway 26 in Winnebago County to County Highway N in Fond du Lac early Thursday morning, May 3rd. Sheriff’s officials now say the northbound lanes of Highway 41 are open to traffic.

The southbound lanes of Highway 41 from Highway 26 in Winnebago County to County Highway N in Fond du Lac County are still closed. That’s a stretch of about six miles.

Forecasters say more than four inches of rain fell in the area. Strong thunderstorms are moving across the state and could redevelop later Thursday.
