Westbound motorists should head south on County X to I-43, south on I-43 to US 14, west on US 14 back to WIS 11. Eastbound motorists travel east on US 14, north on I-43 and north on County X.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) continues to monitor flooding conditions in the southeast region. For up to-the-minute travel information, visit http://www.511wi.gov.

WisDOT offers the following tips on traveling in flooding conditions:

  • Do not attempt to drive through flooded areas.
  • If there is no other route, get to higher ground and wait for the waters to subside.
  • Even if the water appears shallow enough to cross, don’t try it. Water hides dips in the road.
  • Six inches of water will reach the bottom of most passenger cars, causing loss of control or possible stalling.
