UPDATE: I-90 Open from the Wyoming Border to Chamberlain
The South Dakota Departments of Transportation and Public Safety has opened the closed portion of Interstate 90 in both directions.
Travelers are still advised to drive cautiously between Chamberlain and the Wyoming border.
There are still highways where travel is not advised due to drifting snow and ice-covered roads.
The South Dakota Departments of Transportation and Public Safety are advising motorists that Interstate 90 is closed between the Wyoming border and Chamberlain, both east and westbound.
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the western portion of the state and winter storm warning for much of the rest of the state. This system will bring heavy snow, strong winds, freezing rain, and below-freezing temperatures creating difficult driving conditions with significant reductions in visibility.
Many highways are ice-covered and travel is being discouraged through Sunday morning unless absolutely necessary. Drivers trying to avoid the closures are reminded that state highways and county roads will not be any better and maybe worse.
