Wyoming DOT warns of multi-day closure of major interstates due to storm

Published:

The Wyoming Department of Transportation (DOT) is asking drivers to “please change travel plans” as a severe winter storm is expected to stymie travel for days.

On Tuesday evening, WYDOT issued an alert for drivers who are “coming towards Wyoming, waiting to go west from Cheyenne or Laramie on I-80, or waiting to go east on I-80 from Rock Springs.”

WYDOT says that I-90 and I-25 as well as secondary roads will likely be closed into Thursday due to moderate to heavy snow, blowing winds, and dangerously cold temperatures.

Additionally, the agency expects that I-80 and secondary roads will be closed through Friday for snowfall up to two feet, 45 to 65 m.p.h. winds, blizzard conditions, and dangerously cold temperatures.
