Interstates in Dakotas reopen after blizzard
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Interstates that were shut down by a blizzard in the eastern Dakotas have all reopened.
Interstate 29 reopened Monday afternoon between Watertown, S.D. and Fargo, N.D. It earlier reopened between Watertown and Sioux falls to the south and Fargo and Grand Forks to the north. I-94 in North Dakota has reopened between Fargo and Jamestown. I-90 in South Dakota has reopened between Sioux Falls and Wall.
The storm that brought heavy snow and strong winds contributed to numerous accidents, including a seven-vehicle chain-reaction crash on I-94 in southeastern North Dakota. The Highway Patrol says there were only minor injuries.
Patrol troopers and snowplow drivers rescued several stranded motorists in the region.
