CASPER, Wyo. — Portions of Wyoming’s I-80 corridor were closed, due to winter conditions and crashes along the highway, as winter weather dropped snow and cold temperatures across much of the state.

I-80 was closed from Rawlins to Rock Springs, late Monday afternoon. The WYDOT road closures webpage showed I-80 as “closed due to winter conditions and crashes,” as of 3:28 pm.

The estimated re-opening time for the Highway is unknown.

WYDOT officials remind motorists that parking on the roadway is prohibited and delays WYDOT from opening the road.
