Winter weather slows traffic

By  | 

Traffic has been a challenge around the area Friday, but we haven't heard about any serious problems.

Rapid City Police say they responded to eleven accidents between 4:00 Friday morning and mid-afternoon
The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says they've had two non-injury and one injury accident through late afternoon Friday, but they say the roads in the Northern Hills were very slick.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol says they've responded to six non-injury crashes and one minor injury crash as of about 4:00 Friday afternoon, with eight motorist assists.
Back in Rapid City, city officials have decided against issuing a snow removal alert for downtown.
But they say they will start work on removing snow from downtown at 7:30 Friday night and car owners are encouraged to move their cars to plowed areas at that time.
