South Dakota Department of Transportation officials announce Interstate 90 between Mitchell and Sioux Falls (both east and westbound lanes) is now open.
The section of I-90 between Chamberlain and Mitchell opened earlier this evening. There are no sections of Interstate 90 closed to traffic at this time.
I-29 between Watertown and Sioux Falls will remain closed until sometime Monday morning.
Transportation officials are advising that much of Interstate 90 in eastern South Dakota remains extremely icy. Blowing and drifting snow, along with extremely cold temperatures are making travel difficult and motorists are encouraged to postpone travel until tomorrow morning except in cases of an emergency.
Travelers are reminded that Department of Transportation crews will perform winter maintenance operations into the early evening hours at which time winter maintenance will be suspended so that crews can get some rest before winter maintenance operations resume in the morning.
