South Dakota Road Conditions
February 21, 2011 by USA Post
South Dakota Road Conditions, A winter storm system covered a band of Plains and Upper Midwest snow and ice, with most snowfall in Minnesota and the Dakotas. Hundreds of flights were canceled Sunday at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, officials said. School systems that have not been closed for Presidents Day (Monday) were closed due to storm. Interstates like skating rinks and officials warned people to stay put as the winds whipped the snow and reduced visibility. The snow began falling Sunday morning and continued until midnight Monday, a federal holiday. Up a foot of snow fell in South Dakota and around 10 inches in southwest North Dakota North, meteorological services said.
In the area of Yankton, SD, a thick layer of ice coated trees and many a mast 35 meters high was reversed, apparently crushed by the ice at its base, the press (Yankton) & Dakota reported. Parts of Nebraska, Iowa and Wisconsin were disrupted by rain and ice glazed highways and making travel treacherous. The mixture of ice was expected to push north and east on Monday in southern Michigan, northern Ohio and northwestern Pennsylvania, AccuWeather.com said. South Dakota Department of Transportation has opened this section of road Monday morning. It was closed on Sunday, when a snowstorm moved across the state.
Although I-90 is open again, officials remind drivers that winter driving conditions still exist, including some snow packed and slippery and possible areas of blowing snow. Crews went to work to clear roads, so drivers are urged to slow down and make plows plenty of room. I-29 between Sioux Falls and the North Dakota border remains closed and there is not advisable to travel on many roads in northern South Dakota. Before hitting the road, be sure to check the latest road conditions in South Dakota. Motorists can again travel on Interstate 90 between the wall and Chamberlain.
