- Snow removal equipment will be working to remove snow and ice in the driving lanes and the snow remaining on shoulders over the next few days.
- The DOT asks drivers to use extra caution and reduce travel speed.
No-travel advisories continue to impact state highways in the central and southeastern areas of South Dakota that have the greatest snowfall totals from this storm system.
