US 85 from I-90 to Nebraska

Has anyone traveled US 85 from I-90 to the Nebraska border recently?
Have seen comment that upheavals of roadway had made it a terrible drive. Would like your report on current condition of roadway. If that bad, will avoid.

Should have been US 83 (not 85)

I have not been between Murdo and Valentine for a couple of years ... but the road was fine then.

The South Dakota Roads website shows no construction projects or closures on the road

South Dakota has a 511 number that you can call

Bently, if you plan on taking I-80 across NE, I drove across the state in both directions in mid June 2016. Upheavals westbound are bad. There is a lot of construction going on in that area where they have removed the pavement completely for 10 miles at a stretch. So you are corralled to one side of the Interstate one lane in each direction. Still a better looking route than I-70 thru KS. Boring!

Interested also- Traveling 83 this month

We're headed from North Platte to Murdo on 83. Hoping its not in bad condition. State Highway construction map looks like not much happening on the road as indicated by skigramp

Thanks for the information. I had planned on using US 83 to go from I-90 to I-80 and then east. Looking at a June 2016 Valentine, NE campground review, the reviewer said this stretch of US 83 was the worse they had encountered because of roadway upheaval.
We're using a different route.
