PIERRE, S.D. – Officials are opening I-90 from Mitchell to Sioux Falls and I-29 from Watertown to Sioux Falls at 9 a.m. CDT.


I-90 from Sioux Falls to the Minnesota border will reopen at 10 a.m. CDT.


SDDOT crews have been working in these areas since early this morning and are doing everything they can to get interstates open as soon as possible. The southeast quarter of the state received a significant amount of snowfall Saturday along with high winds creating significant blowing and drifting snow.


Roads are still very icy and speeds will be greatly reduced. Drivers will need to use extreme caution when driving today. Snowplow crews will be continuing their work and motorists are asked to be cautious of them on the roadways today.
