Oshkosh, Wis. – The flooding caused by recent storms has now receded on City of Oshkosh streets, with the exception of the following areas: Ohio Street between 9th and 10th, South Main Street between 18th and 24th and Westfield and Taft. The Oshkosh Police Department has also indicated trucks should use 6th Avenue (East or West) for a truck route, and should not attempt to use Ohio Street. City crews are working to clear these streets as soon as possible.
