I-90 Now Open, Flooding still causing issues

PIERRE, S.D — Officials say Interstate 90 is completely open for both east and west bound lanes.

DOT crews are still cleaning many roads and local highways located through the central and northeastern parts of the state. Heavy drifting and stalled vehicles have slowed efforts.

Significant flooding is causing issues in the south central, southeastern and eastern parts of the state. Drivers are asked to not drive through floodwaters as roadways may be washed away underneath.

As travel advisories are lifted, motorists are cautioned to remember that winter driving conditions still exist and if you must travel to slow down, to keep the cruise control off and give plow drivers and emergency crews space to work.

Drivers are reminded that before you travel go to www.safetravelusa.com/sd or call 5-1-1  to view road conditions and travel advisories.
