STURGIS, S.D. – Meade County’s Highway Department crews are still working Saturday to get the remnants of up to three-feet snow off its nearly thousand miles of county roads spanning 3,400 square miles.
Meade County Highway Superintendent Troy Eastman said most of the roads on the West side of the county, which received the most snow, were opened Friday afternoon and evening once the blizzard subsided.
County crews shifted its efforts to the East side of the county Saturday.
Eastman says it will take at least another week for personnel to move the snow drifts far enough from the roads so the roads do not drift shut again if the wind comes up again or when there is another winter weather event.
