Interstate 90/94 east bound closed near Mauston because of flooding

MAUSTON (WKOW) – Flood water running over the eastbound lane of I-39/I-90 has shut down a portion of that highway between Mauston and Lyndon Station. 

The Wisconsin State Patrol ordered the shutdown around 12:30 Tuesday afternoon. 

Eastbound traffic is being turned around near the 72-mile marker using the median cross-over, according to the State Patrol . 

So far, westbound traffic is not affected by floodwater but slowdowns are expected as the turn-around traffic from the eastbound lane merges with westbound traffic.

Eastbound traffic is being diverted off the Interstate at Mauston, then onto HY 12 east to Lyndon Station where traffic can get back onto I-39/I-90 eastbound.
