WY-130 Finally Open
One month and a day after they began, WYDOT crews from Laramie and Saratoga broke through historically deep and heavy snowpack on WYO 130. The alpine roadway between Centennial and Saratoga is now open for the season. WYDOT spokesman Ross Doman says the men worked 60 hour weeks. The last ten working days, dozers moved snow until midnight. Equipment dedicated to the high country snow removal campaign included three snow cats, four dozers, six rotary blowers, and two plows.Motorists are advised that these turnaround spots are open on WYO 130: Libby Turn Loop, Libby Flats Observation Area, Medicine Bow Peak Overlook, both East and West Lake Marie turnarounds, and the Silver Lake parking lot.
