WATERTOWN, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) says due to snow and high winds, Interstate 29 will be closed both northbound and southbound from the city of Watertown to the North Dakota border beginning at 6 p.m.
The combination of snow and strong winds will make I-29 impassable during the evening and overnight hours.
The SDDOT also anticipates secondary highways becoming impassable throughout the evening and overnight. A No Travel Advisory has been issued for the majority of NE South Dakota due to blizzard-like conditions. The combination of the snow and wind will lead to visibilities frequently reduced below one-half mile.
