It Could Be Late This Afternoon Before I-80 in Wyoming Reopens
It could be late this afternoon before Interstate 80 in Wyoming reopens, according to the Wyoming Department of Transportation.
At this time, the eastbound lanes are closed from Evanston to Rock Springs due to rolling closure, both lanes are closed between Rock Springs and Cheyenne due to winter conditions, and the eastbound lanes are closed from Archer to the Nebraska state line due to winter conditions and crashes.
As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, WYDOT estimated it would take crews six to eight hours to get the 255-mile stretch between Rock Springs and Cheyenne back open.
It's unknown when the eastbound lanes between Archer and the Nebraska state line may reopen.
Drivers are encouraged to call 511 or go to wyoroad.info for the latest road conditions and closure information.
