300-Miles Of Interstate 80 Closed In Wyoming
More than 300 miles of Interstate 80 in Wyoming are under a rolling closure as of Wednesday morning.
According to WYDOT, the interstate is closed from Evanston to Laramie.
That's a 309-mile stretch of highway.
Here's how WYDOT defines a rolling closure:
When a town is at capacity, which can happen during a long-duration closure, the closure will be rolled back to the next town to avoid stranding travelers in a location without adequate services. The road may be open in the direction leading away from the affected area.
While the roads appear mostly clear, WYDOT webcams show a snow-covered highway in the Elk Mountain area.
It's unclear when the closures will be lifted.
