Crews continuing to work on Interstate 90

PIERRE, S.D. (Press Release) – South Dakota Department of Transportation crews have been working this week to create a water barrier along the westbound lanes of Interstate 90, just east of Exit 357 (Bridgewater), to divert the water from continuing to overtop the interstate.

Traffic will still be reduced to one lane each direction east of Exit 357 to allow crews to continue monitoring and managing water levels as necessary to keep the roadway clear. Flagging operations will no longer be utilized.

The westbound off-ramp at Exit 357 will remain closed due to high water levels over the ramp.

Drivers should be alert to changing conditions, standing water in the median and along the shoulders, suddenly slowing and merging traffic, and workers and equipment adjacent to the roadway.

Always check or call 5-1-1 before traveling to plan your route, allow plenty of extra time to reach your destination.
