Winter Storm Impacts Wyoming Roads

Written by on January 22, 2019

The winter storm that blew through the area yesterday is taking a break today, but left its mark on the state.

Wind River Canyon was closed yesterday in both directions due to winter weather conditions, although it re-opened early this morning. Portions of 1-80 and I-25 are still closed.

The National Weather Service reports that travel is very difficult around the cowboy state. The Wyoming Department of Transportation shows NO green on their online road condition map, which means there are no dry roads anywhere in the state.

The cold front will continue to exit the region today, leaving clearing skies and colder temperatures in its wake. However, another system will bring snow to the west tomorrow, and breezy winds tonight. 

Drivers are encouraged to go to to check for road conditions and possible closures.
