Welcome Center will not reopen

SOUTH YANKTON — After nearly 18 years of welcoming travelers to Northeast Nebraska and the surrounding area, the Corps of Discovery Welcome Center on Highway 81 is closing.

It was a project that sought to offer a rest stop with a view of the Missouri River for travelers passing through the area, and a place where people could learn more about northeast Nebraska tourism attractions. The Center is located on the west side of Hwy. 81 a mile south of the bridge that crosses into Yankton.

Typically during the winter, it closed from Dec. 23 through the end of February, but at a Board of Directors meeting Jan. 31, it was decided the Center will close and the property will go back to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
