The real shame is that there's no route that parallels I-90 through southern SD, connecting MSP to Sioux Falls and Rapid City, that continues through to Montana; that road dead-ends in Wyoming.
Well, Mr. Mark HB, not completely sure how you'd get West of Rapid City (even if that was good enough for Cary and Eva Marie to "have a little sport"), and for that matter East of Marquette, IA, but my MILW certainly had the most impressive bridge over the "Mighty MO" in SD at Chamberlain. It also had the second most impressive at Mobridge.
It appears there is still a road, the Dakota Southern supposedly operates over the State owned right of way.
I never got near that part of the road during my eleven year "hitch', however I did get to see sights from a motorcar such as X-ing the "Mo" at Kansas City and also the Sixteenmile Canyon in Montana.
Suffice to say, "the Gubm'nt" built it as part as part of a dam project, as they did at Mobridge.
