Department of Transportation Works to Clear 191 South

A snowplow works to clear US191 South this week.

ROCK SPRINGS — With Interstate 80 clearing up, the Wyoming Department of Transportation is now shifting their crews and efforts to re-opening US191 South.

The highway that runs south of Rock Springs toward Flaming Gorge and the Utah State Line has been closed since Tuesday due to heavy snowfall and impassable roads.

The US 191 South seasonal weight restriction, no trucks in excess of 40,000 pounds, will remain in effect until April 1.
