I-29 Still Closed, Aberdeen Digs Out

Sioux falls; Aberdeen, SD

No travel is advised across much of South Dakota as a winter storm creates hazardous driving conditions.

Interstate 29 from Watertown to North Dakota is still closed and will remain closed until conditions improve and crews are able to clear the road.  There is also no travel advised on Highway 212 from Watertown to the west.

No travel is also advised on stretches of Interstate 90 west of Mitchell.  To see a full report of areas where no travel is advised, visit the Safe Travel USA website. 

Aberdeen has received more than six inches of snow as it continues to fall.  KELOLAND's Erich Schaffhauser says road crews are dealing with the snow as best as possible but there are areas that are slick, especially on side roads.

To the south, the Spink County Sheriff says the thick snow is making it difficult for drivers to see where the road ends and the ditch begins. 

No travel is advised on Highway 281 in Spink, Beadle, Aurora and Douglas counties because of reduced visibility, blowing snow and slippery conditions.

Clark County has issued a No Travel Advisory for the whole county.

Temperatures in Sioux Falls are hovering around the freezing mark, changing the precipitation from rain to light snow at times.  Street crews have once again treated main roads.

We have team reports on the conditions as it continues to develop on KELOLAND This Morning.
