Interstate 90 Closed Between Sturgis and Wyoming Border
PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota officials are closing Interstate 90 between Exit 30 at Sturgis and the Wyoming state border effective immediately.
That segment of I-90 will remain closed until storm conditions improve and crews are able to clear the roadway.
Travelers are urged to visit safetravelusa.com/SD or to call 511 to check road conditions in other parts of South Dakota. The early-fall storm is impacting visibility and travel in other areas of western South Dakota, and officials caution travelers to watch the weather and be prepared to change travel plans.

Motorists found traveling the closed segment of I-90 will be in violation of state law. A stranded traveler on the closed highway could also be charged for the cost of a rescue effort, up to $10,000.
