(SD)-I 90 Reopened From Rapid City To Wyo Line
RAPID CITY, S.D. - Interstate 90 has reopened between Rapid City and the Wyoming border with the freeway still closed between Rapid City and the Missouri River at the Oacoma/Chamberlain Exit 260.
Winds are still very high and the newly-opened portion of the Interstate is still covered with about half an inch of ice, so officials are asking drivers of high-profile vehicles to wait until this afternoon when winds decrease and crews have had more time to treat and reduce the amount of ice on the roadway.
Roads across much of the rest of South Dakota have "No Travel Advised" or are marked as "Impassable/Blocked". Crews are out where visibility allows.
There is also significant flooding in the south central, southeastern part of South Dakota, including a section of I-90 between Exits 264 and 268.
Motorists are cautioned to remember winter driving conditions still exist across the state and if you must travel to slow down, keep the cruise off and give plow drivers and emergency responders room to work.
Check www.safetravelusa.com/sd or call 5-1-1 before to view road conditions, No Travel Advisories, flooded roadways and roads marked as impassable.
