Yankton County bridges starting to re-open following flooding

YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – Yankton County highway crews are still working to repair the damage from the latest round of record flooding on the James River. Two of the four James River bridges re-opened over the weekend after inspections.

County Commission Chairman Dan Klimisch says they don’t have any damage estimates, yet.

Klimisch says they hope to get some disaster aid at some point.

Klimisch says they have to wait for the state to make the next move.

The Stone Church bridge and the Janesville bridge will stay closed until some erosion and pavement damage can be repaired.
