Flood season leads to road closures in Prairie du Chien

PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. (WKBT)–Due to a projected river crest at 18.5 feet, the City of Prairie du Chien has announced the closing of most roads in St. Feriole Island.

Starting Monday April 6, all roads will be closed except for Water Street.

There will be no parking on either side of Water Street as well.

The river is projected to crest on Tuesday.
