The closure is near the Beltline.


UPDATE (WKOW) -- The northbound lanes of I39/90 that had been closed near Stoughton have reopened, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. 


UPDATE (WKOW) -- 27 Traffic Tracker is indicating the northbound lanes of I-39 are now closed from the Beltline all the way to U.S. 51. 

There are two separate crashes in the northbound lanes. The first involved a semi and happened around 5:15 a.m.

The second happened closer to U.S. 51 just before 8:00 a.m.

Traffic is being detoured from the interstate onto U.S. 51. Take U.S. 51 west (north) back to the Beltline.


UPDATE (WKOW) -- Crews are working to remove tires from the trailer of the semi involved in an accident.

As of 8:15 a.m., they are unloading the trailer. The Wisconsin State Patrol says it could take a few hours before the northbound lanes of I-39 are back open.

Meanwhile, there is another traffic incident a few miles south, in the northbound lanes of I-39 near U.S. 51. The Wisconsin State Patrol could not give us any information on that yet, so we are not sure if it's related to back-ups in the area.
