The latest blast of weather is causing some tough travel conditions on western South Dakota roads.
South Dakota Department of Transportation official Greg Boness says the worst weather is in the northern hills near Lead and Deadwood where there is moderate to heavy snow, high winds and low visibility. Boness says no travel is advised in that area.
On Interstate 90 out west, Boness says there’s mainly slush on the roads. The lower the elevation, the better the conditions get. You can visit Safe Travel USA to see what the road conditions look like in your area.
Crews haven’t had much time to prepare for this round of snow either. It was less than two weeks ago when more than four feet of snow fell in some areas in the Black Hills. But Boness says their equipment is holding up and they are getting their job done.
Boness hopes crews have the roads all clear by mid-afternoon on Tuesday.
So far, up to one foot of snow has been reported in some areas of the hills.
