ClearPath 511 is a free alert service providing information on road closures, no-travel advisories, and highway flooding. Users can choose to receive alerts by e-mail or text messages for specific highway routes, days of the week, and times of day fitting their individual needs. Standard text messaging rates apply.

“ClearPath 511 is another tool the South Dakota Department of Transportation is using to provide travelers with the most complete and up-to-date information,” says Kristi Sandal, Public Information Officer. “Keeping the public safe is our No. 1 priority”.

To subscribe to ClearPath 511, go to and click on the intertwined CP symbol in the upper right hand corner of the page.

ClearPath 511 presents a menu offering a variety of options, settings, preferences and locations to receive alerts.
