UPDATE at 2:30 a.m.: I-80 has been reopened from Cheyenne to Evanston; NO high profile vehicles from Walcott Jct. to Cheyenne

The Wyoming Department of Transportation has closed I-80 due to extreme winter conditions. Either there have been multiple accidents, according to WYDOT, or the closure is necessary to ensure safety of maintenance personnel. A WYDOT release this afternoon said drivers of vehicles that fail to heed this closure shall be subject to a fine and even imprisonment. It is not known at this time when the Interstate will be reopened. *Feature Photo: WYDOT Webcam / Pitchengine Communities* #county10
