Drivers deal with slow Monday morning commute


MADISON (WKOW) -- Monday morning's commute was slow, but there are no serious accidents reported in Dane County.

Dane County dispatchers say despite the slick conditions, there are no major accidents to deal with. Madison street crews have been working throughout the night and early morning, and will continue to be out all day Monday to treat the roads.

There are slowdowns on the Beltline, on Park Street, and Washington Avenue southbound near 5th Street. Things are also a little slow on Highway 12 coming into Madison from the west.


MADISON (WKOW) -- The Monday morning commute is still expected to be slow even though street crews have been out overnight and early Monday morning plowing and salting roads.

The Madison Streets Department tells 27 News they are seeing some slick spots and are asking people to leave early and drive slow. They also want people to make sure drivers are staying at least 200 feet back of any plows.

The Wisconsin State Patrol is reporting multiple slide-offs in Columbia County on I-39 near Portage. Dane County Communications reports no accidents as of 6:30 a.m.

Blowing snow could be a problem throughout the day since the snow is so light. Plow crews will be out working throughout the day, not just Monday morning.
