(KSFY) The South Dakota Department of Public Safety is opening all of Interstate 29 and 90 Sunday morning.
As of 9:00 a.m. Sunday, I-29 from Watertown to Sioux Falls is now open. Interstate 90 is now open from Mitchell to Sioux Falls, but remains closed east of Sioux Falls and into Minnesota.
Officials say I-90 from Sioux Falls to the Minnesota border will reopen at 10 a.m..
State officials say SDDOT crews have been working in these areas since early Sunday morning and are doing everything they can to get interstates open as soon as possible. The southeast quarter of the state received a significant amount of snowfall Saturday along with high winds creating significant blowing and drifting snow.
Just because the interstates are open does not mean travel will be easy. State officials say roads are still very icy and speeds will be greatly reduced. Drivers will need to use extreme caution when driving today. Snowplow crews will be continuing their work and motorists are asked to be cautious of them on the roadways today.
