The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is warning drivers about finger snow drifts that developed overnight and stick out into driving lanes.
Be mindful of finger drifts during your morning commute. This drift on SD Hwy 115 near 276th St. sticks out about 2’ into the SB driving lane. /A23 pic.twitter.com/xbBf5GeiXi— Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Canton, SD (@lincosheriffsd) March 5, 2019
Blowing and drifting snow continues to create problems for drivers and plows Tuesday morning.
Many northern counties suspended plows from going out on the road.
All roads in South Dakota have some sort of wet/snow conditions, while Highway 12 and Highway 212 west of the Missouri River are closed as of 5:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.
The Perkins County Sheriff’s Office says road conditions have not improved. No travel is advised in many northern areas.
