Water over Hwy 75, three miles south of Madison


WILLMAR, Minn. — (8:30 p.m.) The Minnesota Department of Transportation advises motorists to travel with caution on Hwy 75, three miles south of Madison due to water over the highway.


Twenty-four flagging operations will guide motorists through the area.  Message boards and barrels with flashing lights also in place. 


Mn/DOT will continue to monitor the water level. No closure of Hwy 75 is anticipated at this time; however, flooding is difficult to predict and roads may be closed or restricted without warning. Motorists are advised to check road conditions in advance of travel.


Every flood is dangerous to motorists. If you must travel in the (SW, SE, NW, NE, central Minnesota) area, follow these safe driving practices (source: Federal Emergency Management Agency http://www.fema.gov/hazard/flood/fl_during.shtm).
