Flooding update from Madison Police Chief

KJAM News had a chance to visit with Madison Police Chief Justin Meyer around 9:00 this morning about the status of the flooding situation and evacuations in Madison.

Again, no travel is advised in the city of Madison and Lake County.  The state Department of Transportation has closed Highway 81 north of Madison, Highway 34 west of Madison, and Highway 19 at Marr’s Beach.  Highway 34 east of Madison is open to Interstate 29.

Due to the overload of water at the treatment plants in the city, Madison City residents are asked to curtail the use of water and the sanitary sewer system until the water recedes.
