Logging Operations Ongoing on Medicine Bow Forest
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Officials on the Medicine Bow National Forest say motorists on I-80 between Cheyenne and Laramie and along Happy Jack Road will see logging operations over the next year or two as crews work to remove hazardous trees from along the roadways.
Workers with the Wyoming Department of Transportation are removing trees that could fall and damage fences that keep cattle off the roadways. Hazardous trees also need to be removed from the Summit Rest Area.
The agencies don’t expect road closures, but say the rest area will likely be closed for several days when work is done in that area. Log trucks will be operating near work areas.
