I-90 closing from Rapid City to Wyoming again

By: - December 15, 2022 9:52 am

Interstate 90 (both eastbound and westbound) will close from Rapid City to the Wyoming state line beginning at 10 a.m. Mountain/11 a.m. Central today, according to the state Department of Transportation.

This section of I-90, which was previously closed Tuesday and reopened Wednesday, is being closed once again due to continued snow and sustained high winds causing low visibility and excessive drifting.

The new closure adds to an existing I-90 closure from Rapid City to Mitchell.

The exception is Interstate 90 within the Rapid City metro area (exit 55 to exit 67), which will be open for local travel. Motorists are reminded that many no-travel advisories are in place on state highways throughout the state. Secondary highways are impassable in many locations.  For the latest on road and weather conditions, visit https://sd511.org or dial 511.
