Wyoming roadways shut down for 10 inches of September snow


Wyoming transportation officials are warning drivers to seek alternate routes after a heavy (and very early) snow storm shut down roadways.

On the morning of Tuesday, September 8, the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) announced that  WYO 251 and WYO 258 are closed after 10 inches of snow fell in the Casper area.


Several stretches of I-80 are also closed due to winter-like weather (even through fall doesn’t start until September 22!).

Several closures are in effect along I-80 and other roads in Wyoming. For the latest on the closures and for road and travel information, visit WYDOT’s 511 website at https://wyoroad.info

WYDOT says that due to the snow, travel on all other area highways is not advisable due to snow and slick road conditions.

CASPER – Around 10 inches of snow in the area. WYO 251 and WYO 258 closed. All other area highways no unnecessary travel with slick conditions and continuing wet and icy snow.

The snow isn’t the only severe weather snarling travel on Tuesday morning — high winds have also blown over several trucks and resulted in restricted travel in several counties in Utah.
