Labor Day weekend is typically a busy one on the roads, but this year, drivers could be slowed down even more because of this week's flooding.

Officials say drivers heading to southern Wisconsin will need to be especially careful. There are still roads closed, and any more rain could amplify the problem even more.

Officials say one big piece of advice for drivers is to check 511 - that website shows all the closures around the state.

If you do come up on a road that's closed or flooded, do not try to drive through it or around the immediate barricades.

Drivers should instead turn around and try to find an alternate route - that's where 511 can help drivers in case they run into any trouble on this busy travel weekend.
