Local News

DOUGLAS COUNTY, S.D. (KELO) — Highway 44 in southeastern South Dakota is only one of the major roads that has been impacted by flooding. 

On Friday, authorities shared photos on social media showing why parts of the major highway are closed. Rushing water has washed out areas of support around a bridge on Highway 44 east of Corsica. 

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said the bridge is located between 396th Avenue and 395th Avenue, which is just south of Corsica Lake. 

Authorities believe the bridge will be closed for a while.
