Snow hampers travel in parts of the Dakotas

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Travel has been hampered in parts of the Dakotas as the states get their second measurable snowfall in a week.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Travel has been hampered in parts of the Dakotas as the states get their second measurable snowfall in a week.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that North Dakota officials have reopened Interstate 94 from Mandan to Dickinson. I-94 had been closed earlier Thursday because of trucks blocking the road.

The Department of Transportation says the highway between New Salem and Hebron is covered with rough, compacted snow and ramps may still be blocked.

Travel also was difficult in South Dakota, and some schools closed for the day.

The National Weather Service issued winter weather warnings and advisories early Thursday for parts of the two states. As much as 10 inches of snow had fallen in southwest North Dakota and as much as 14 inches in western South Dakota.
