According to RVDroz's old website, Minnesota finished theirs first.  But it was all submitted through and approved by AASHTO at the same time for all three states.

IIRC, I-90 wasn't completed in Minnesota until late 1976 or sometime in 1977.  A section that runs for an interchange or two on either side of Blue Earth, MN was the last to open.  It was completed through South Dakota by then, except for possibly a tiny part by the Wyoming state line (this is west of Rapid City, SD, where US 16 diverges from it, anyways).

^ Mike, it was late 1978 when I-90 was completed near Blue Earth.  The SD/MN/WI submission and AASHTO's approval on US 16 actually predated the completion by a few months.  But MnDOT and WisDOT beat out SD on removing US 16 first.
