Dozens of roads are closed to travel in Yankton County.

On Friday, the Yankton County Highway Superintendent announced no travel is advised on Yankton County gravel roads until further notice.  Multiple vehicles stuck in the middle of several gravel roads made travel and snow removal nearly impossible.  

The public was asked to stay off all county roads as much as possible to avoid further damage
