Campus alert: UW-Madison operating normally, watching water levels

Rising lake levels have caused flooding on Madison's isthmus that may continue for one to two weeks. According to the National Weather Service, a chance for more rain is in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday, which could lead to additional flooding.

UW-Madison is operating normally, but closely watching water levels on and off campus. Be advised that travel to and from campus, especially from the east, may be affected by road closures related to high water levels. Commuters are asked to avoid driving on the isthmus and access the campus from the south or west. 

Metro Transit is offering free rides on all fixed route and paratransit vehicles through Monday, Aug. 27. Service will return to regular fares on Tuesday, Aug. 28.
Bus riders should plan for possible reduced service, detours and delays in the event that water levels rise within the isthmus.

UW Law students who were displaced due to flooding may contact Emily Kite, assistant dean for student affairs, for assistance.
