8 AM Traffic Rundown – Lots Off Issues

Here’s what you need to know about traffic at 8 AM on your Friday.


  • There are reports of an eight car crash on Interstate 90 east bound in DeForest near the Highway V exit.  Avoid this area.
  • A very serious accident occurred earlier this morning at US Highway 151 southbound and American Parkway.  The right lane is currently closed, and I expect it to remain closed for quite some time as the Wisconsin State Patrol Crash Reconstruction Team investigates the crash.  Madison Police say to expect delays for several hours.
  • The left lane on Interstate 90 eastbound near Janesville and mile marker 170 is crawling along due to to a crash.  You’ll see slowdowns starting near Wisconsin highway 26.  The left lane is now closed both east and westbound on the interstate in the area.
  • US Highway 151 southbound is reportedly at a dead stop near Hwy 73 due to a multiple vehicle crash.  It’s been backed up for some time with no end in sight at this time.
  • The westbound Beltline is seeing it’s usual delays.  You’ll be slow from Stoughton road through Fish Hatchery road.
  • It’s slippery out there.  Use caution and leave some extra time during your commute.
