Interstate 80 reopens after blizzard shuts down Southeastern Wyoming

The National Weather Service in Cheyenne extended its blizzard warning area westward Wednesday morning to include all of Albany County. While Laramie is no longer in a blizzard warning, plows both in town and on the interstate are still worked all day to clear the blowing snow.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation closed Interstate 80 to all traffic from Rock Springs to Cheyenne both eastbound and westbound Wednesday. In a Thursday night news release, WYDOT announced all interstate closures had been lifted.

The release added high winds today will “hamper visibility due to blowing snow.”
