Portion of Business 51 in Plover closed due to high water

PLOVER, Wis. (WSAW) --

East and westbound lanes of Business 51 in Plover are closed due to flood waters. Both law enforcement and village officials have had their hands full, helping those who tried to drive their way through the water.

"Obviously, the barricades are there for a reason. And they find that out when their cars stall out and then they have to be rescued and brought out of the water," explained village administrator, Dan Mahoney.

The county closed the stretch of road around 3 a.m. Friday.

The affected area is Foremost Road to County B and from Maple Drive to Cedar Drive.

Our reporter at the scene said several vehicles are stuck in the water. Although no one appears to be injured.

Drivers heading east should head north on Foremost Road to River Road, east on River Road to Business 51/Post. Then north Business 51 to County HH, and take County HH to I-39. Go South on I-39 back to WIS 54 as an alternate route. Reverse for westbound traffic.
