MOBRIDGE, S.D. – (DRG News) The South Dakota Department of Transportation says due to muddy conditions, no travel is advised on a portion of state Highway 65 in Corson County. Precipitation in north central South Dakota has made travel difficult through a 1.7 mile grading project between McIntosh and Isabel. The stretch could become impassable at some point today. John Vilbrandt with the DOT in Mobridge says the department plans to have flaggers near McIntosh at the junction of Highways 12 and 65 who will warn drivers they can’t go south; as well as near Isabel at the north end of the junction of Highways 20 and 65. If the construction area becomes impassible, drivers who reach the stretch from either end will encounter a barrier and will have to turn around. Motorists are being encouraged to take an alternate route and visit www.safetravelusa.com or call 5-1-1 for road construction, closure and opening information.
