I-90 Stretch Opens
Interstate 90 between Chamberlain and Mitchell (both east and westbound lanes) is now open.
I-90 between Mitchell and Sioux Falls remains closed.
Some snow packed and slippery areas, blowing and drifting snow, and areas of limited visibility will persist until Monday morning.
Blowing and drifting snow, which may continue to accumulate overnight at bridge ends and in sheltered areas, can make travel conditions extremely dangerous when combined with the dangerously cold temperatures.
The fine for being on a closed highway is up to $1,000. A stranded traveler also could be charged for the cost of a rescue effort, up to $10,000.
Department of Transportation crews will work on roads for a while yet Sunday night but will be suspended so that crews can get some rest before winter maintenance operations resume in the morning.
