Update On Yankton Roads and Trails

Mar 14, 2019 | ,

(KVHT) – As flood waters begin to recede, the City of Yankton has updated information regarding roads and bridges in and around the City. Officials say all city streets and bridges have been re-opened to traffic, and travel restrictions have been lifted.  Many areas of the community continue to experience flooding and standing water and residents are asked to continue to avoid these dangerous areas. The City is also asking residents to limit water use through Friday evening.  Due to the heavy rains the Yankton Waste Water Treatment Plant is experiencing above normal flows in the sanitary sewer system. The high flows are placing significant stress on the sanitary sewer system. The drinking water system is safe and plentiful.  The restrictions as noted are to help alleviate flows through the sanitary sewer system. Also, the Auld-Brokaw Trail is flooded and the entire trail system closed for the foreseeable future. The trail is unsafe due to erosion and flood damage. The Yankton County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is operating a free self-serve sandbagging station at the Yankton County Highway Department. The City encourages everyone to check on neighbors and offer assistance if able and the Red Cross is maintaining the emergency shelter.
