UPDATE: Highway 50 closure not in effect yet

As of about 7:30 a.m., the Highway 50 closure is not yet in effect from the east end at least.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced Thursday that they planned to close Highway 50 from the Highway 75 intersection in Paddock Lake to the Highway 83-north intersection in Wheatland.

The closure is due to concerns about rising Fox River flood waters over running the highway. Water was within about a foot of the eastbound lanes in Wheatladn near Highway W-north Thursday evening.
