Wintry conditions close more roads, highways around Casper


CASPER, Wyo. — Throughout the Casper area, several streets and highways have been closed by the Wyoming Department of Transportation as winter conditions have made travel dangerous in a number of locations.

Roads are closed along Wyoming 220 from Pathfinder Road to Alcova; between Wyoming 258, Wyoming Boulevard and the end of the state route; between Wyoming 220 and Robertson Road; and between Robertson Road and US 20/26.

Strong winds are drastically reducing visibility by blowing snow drifts with enough force to, in some cases, cause whiteouts and ground blizzard conditions. WYDOT urges motorists to use caution on roadways and to give themselves additional space behind other vehicles.
