UPDATE: I-29 Reopens, Officials Still Caution Drivers
UPDATE: According to the South Dakota Department of Transportation, Interstate 29 is open once again between the Tea Exit and the Iowa border.
But, officials have also issued a travel caution for that section of I-29 on both north and southbound lanes. They say heavy snow from Monday’s blizzard is compacted onto the roadways, creating extremely slippery conditions on I-29 and highways in southeastern South Dakota. Strong winds continue to cause drifting and poor visibility. Those winds are expected to start dying down after Drivers are asked to postpone travel plans until Tuesday if possible.
