I-29 travel conditions from Sioux Falls to Brookings:
- A No Travel Advisory will be in place through the overnight on this section of I-29.
- Due to the heavy snowfall and sustained high winds, travelers should expect to encounter snow and ice-covered roads and snow-covered shoulders; along with low visibility due to blowing snow.
- Snow removal equipment will be working to remove snow and ice in the driving lanes and the snow remaining on shoulders over the next few days.
- Please use extra caution and reduce travel speed.
No Travel Advisories remain in place on state highways across the central and southeastern portion of South Dakota, with many highways physically impassable from blockages of large snow drifts and stranded vehicles. Motorists should not use secondary highways to avoid the I-90 closure. Travel conditions are still very difficult. Many vehicles are becoming stuck on these state highways due to drifting snow.
