There are a lot of things to love about South Dakota, and we can add one more thing to that rather lengthy list now, the Interstate Highway System that runs throughout our state.

Trucker Path, a popular truck-safe routing and navigation app frequently used by truck drivers recently released its ranking of the best and worst interstate routes for truck drivers throughout the U.S., and I-90 came out on top.

Those who drive 18-wheelers for a living claim that I-90 is a dream to drive on most days.

According to an article in Dakota News Now, I-90 stretching from Seattle, Washington, and crossing right through the Black Hills all the way to Boston, Massachusetts, is ranked as the best stretch of Interstate highway in the nation for those who make a living driving it.

The article discusses how Trucker Path created its app nearly 10 years ago to provide truckers with more efficient, safe, and productive routes.

Jeff Miller has been driving semi-truck for 40 years, he told the folks at Trucker Path, that I-90 is one of the best interstates out there, however, he did say it still can be a hassle at times, especially when under construction, when the Sturgis rally is underway, and during the winter months, but, outside of that he generally likes driving I-90.

Many truckers have come to rely on the Trucker Path app as a great navigation tool to help provide them with the necessary information they need while en route.

I'm sure the app is coming in extremely handy right about now, as trucker drivers attempt to navigate all the various flooded regions of South Dakota and surrounding states.

Be safe out there, everyone. Hopefully, there will be smoother roads ahead for all you long-haulers very soon!
