As of 7:30 am on Wednesday, Feb. 15, large stretches of Interstate 80 in Wyoming were closed due to winter travel conditions.

That's according to the WYDOT Road Conditions website: According to the website, I-80 is closed in both directions between Rock Springs and Rawlins.

As of 5 a.m. the estimated opening time was listed as between 7 and 11 hours.

I-80 was also closed westbound between Laramie and Rawlins. I-80 between the Nebraska State Line and Laramie was open, but with blowing snow and slick conditions reported.

Interstate 25 in Wyoming was open, but with less-than-ideal conditions. Slick conditions, strong winds are reported, and a No Unnecessary Travel Advisory is in effect between Casper and Exit 227.
