PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota officials have closed the westbound lanes of Interstate 90 from Exit 10 to the Wyoming border.
Interstate 90, along with several other roads in northeastern Wyoming, is closed from the South Dakota border west. Wyoming officials asked South Dakota to close the short stretch of I-90 on the South Dakota side of the border to help control traffic.
A “No Travel Advisory” remains in effect for much of western South Dakota due to freezing rain and extremely slippery road conditions. Freezing rain is expected to continue throughout the morning, changing over to snow later in the day. South Dakota and travelers are urged to visit www.safetravelusa.com or call 511 to check road conditions. “Intermittent freezing rain can cause roads to become very slippery with conditions changing rapidly” says Greg Fuller, SDDOT Director of Operations.
SDDOT plows are working to apply salt to the roads in an effort to melt the ice, but conditions remain slippery and travel is treacherous in many locations. Travelers are urged to visit www.safetravelusa.com or call 511 to check road conditions. Officials urge travelers to watch the weather and to be prepared to change travel plans if necessary as this weather system moves across the state over the next few days.
