12:34 P.M. UPDATE

The eastbound lanes of Interstate 80 from Laramie to Cheyenne have been reopened.


Winter conditions and crashes have, once again, forced the closure of eastbound Interstate 80 from Laramie to Cheyenne.

As of 11:30 a.m., the Wyoming Department of Transportation estimated it would take crews three to five hours to get the lanes back open.

A black ice advisory is also in effect between Happy Jack Road (exit 323) and Buford (exit 335).

Drivers are encouraged to call 511 or go to wyoroad.info for the latest road conditions and closure information.
