Snow Temporarily Forces Some Wyoming Highways to Close

CHEYENNE, WY. (AP) — Wyoming transportation officials are reopening portions of the highways they had been forced to close due to snow and ice.

Officials reopened Interstate 25 at the Colorado state line on Sunday morning after hazardous driving conditions had caused an 11-hour closure.

Officials also temporarily closed parts of Interstate 80, U.S. Highway 287 and U.S. Highway 87.

Most of those roadways have been reopened or were scheduled to reopen later Sunday after receiving up to 8 inches of snow in the last 24 hours

The National Weather Service says the snow is expected to end on Sunday but warns the hazardous driving conditions will remain.
