I-80 in Wyoming shut down for high winds, crashes


A portion of Interstate 80 westbound in Wyoming is shut down due to a serious wreck. 

I-80 westbound between Rawlins and Rock Springs was shut down at 10:53 a.m. on Tuesday, November 10th for a crash that occurred at milepost 184. 

Officials have not released an estimated time of reopening. 

This closure comes just hours after WYDOT shut down I-80 between Laramie and Rawlins due to high wind. That closure began at 3:30 a.m. and included Highway 30 and Highway 287  between Rawlins and Laramie, reported Oil City News.

Surrounding areas along I-80 are also reporting black ice, high winds, and all around treacherous weather, reported Laramie Live.

“The Wyoming show 11-10-20,” wrote one trucker in a post to Facebook, who was in the passenger seat at the time the pictures were taken.

A high wind warning for southeastern Wyoming will remain in effect until 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

Stay safe out there, drivers!
