A winter storm that has rocked the state has closed all but a few short stretches of interstates 80 and 25 as of 6:30 Tuesday morning, April 4.

That's according to the WYDOT Road and Travel conditions website. According to the website, all of Interstate 80 is closed except for I-80 between Cheyenne and the Nebraska state line and a short stretch in the far west between Evanston and the Utah state line. The website said a projected opening time was not known.

Likewise, almost all of I-25 in Wyoming was closed other than a few miles between Cheyenne and the Colorado state line and a few miles near Buffalo. But even the area around Buffalo that is open had a "no unnecessary travel" designation. Here is the Dayweather statewide travel conditions map for through Thursday:

2022's Deadliest Wyoming County by Traffic Deaths

While car crashes can occur anywhere, some roads in Wyoming are more dangerous than others.

According to Wyoming Highway Patrol data, there were 117 fatal crashes in the Cowboy State in 2022 resulting in 133 deaths.

Of those fatal crashes, the majority (13.68%) occurred in Laramie County -- two in January, one in February, one in March, two in April, one in June, two in July, three in August, two in September, one in November, and one in December.

Sweetwater County saw the second most fatal crashes last year, 12, while Fremont and Lincoln counties each saw 10.

Albany and Park counties each recorded eight, and Campbell, Converse, and Natrona counties each tallied seven.

The deadliest 2022 crash in Laramie County took place on June 17 when two semis collided on Interstate 80 east of Cheyenne and immediately became engulfed in flames killing both drivers and a passenger.

Laramie County also saw two fatal crashes involving motorcyclists, two fatal crashes involving juveniles, and a fatal crash involving a pedestrian last year.

Below is the Wyoming Highway Patrol narrative of every fatal crash that occurred in Laramie County in 2022.
