I-90 Exit 357 Flooding Update





For Immediate Release: Thursday, September 19, 2019

Contact: Kristi Sandal, Communications Manager, 605.773.7179

 

 

PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota Department of Transportation crews have been working this week to create a water barrier along the westbound lanes of Interstate 90, just east of Exit 357 (Bridgewater), to divert the water from continuing to overtop the interstate.

 

Traffic will still be reduced to one lane each direction east of Exit 357 to allow crews to continue monitoring and managing water levels as necessary to keep the roadway clear. Flagging operations will no longer be utilized.

 

The westbound off-ramp at Exit 357 will remain closed due to high water levels over the ramp.

 

Drivers should be alert to changing conditions, standing water in the median and along the shoulders, suddenly slowing and merging traffic, and workers and equipment adjacent to the roadway.

 

Always check www.safetravelusa.com/sd or call 5-1-1 before traveling to plan your route, allow plenty of extra time to reach your destination.
