South Dakota Under Winter Storm Emergency, Interstates Closed
Interstate 90 (both eastbound and westbound) remains closed from Rapid City (exit 67) to Sioux Falls (exit 395) due to sustained high winds causing blizzard-like conditions.
The current closure on I-90 has been extended from Sioux Falls (exit 402) to the Minnesota state line as of 7 p.m. (CT) on Thursday, Dec. 22, 2022.
Interstate 29 (both northbound and southbound) is closed from Sioux Falls (at the I-29/I-90 interchange) to the North Dakota state line.
Due to continued high winds causing near zero visibility and drifting snow, along with ongoing issues with stranded motorists, SDDOT anticipates the I-90 closure to remain in place through Friday, Dec. 23, 2022.
Officials will continually assess conditions to determine when roads can be reopened safely.
