Update: Impassable Roads Prompt Madison School Closures for Thursday, District Officials Say

Credits: Madison Public Schools

All Madison public schools will be closed on Thursday due to impassable road conditions, including downed trees and power lines, district officials announced Wednesday night. 

A two-hour delayed opening was originally declared for Thursday, but dangerous roads may still plague Madisonians during the morning commute as snow and tree removal crews finish cleaning up and power companies continue to restore electricity for those in need.

Those attending school tomorrow—and the parents giving them rides—will need time to “dig out” once the flurries stop.

Some Madison neighborhoods have experienced power outages in the past few hours, residents reported, as Madison was pelted with at least a foot of snow.

One resident reported a downed tree on Green Village Road that blocked the street on both sides. Police reported fallen live wires as of Wednesday evening and urged all residents to stay indoors.

The state of emergency issued by Gov. Phil Murphy on Tuesday at 8 p.m. is still in effect. No travel ban has been announced.
