The South Dakota Department of Transportation has reopened I-90 from across the state, but I-29 from Sioux Falls north to Watertown remains closed because of the snow and wind this evening.

State officials say a thick layer of ice, combined with blowing and drifting snow and areas of low visibility are continuing to be the issue on Interstate 29 between Watertown and Sioux Falls.
The Highway Patrol has also said there are several stuck vehicles which are blocking the roadway. It is likely that crews will be unable to clear those vehicles and plow that area until morning. All drivers and passengers in those vehicles have been transported to safety.

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.
