ROCK SPRINGS — The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) will be closing through traffic in both directions on Interstate 80 from Point of Rocks to Rock Springs in the early morning hours of Monday, July 12, to allow an oversize load to travel through the Baxter Interchange construction project. The closure will take place from 3 a.m. to 5 a.m.
Due to the size of the load, the two-way traffic control must be removed to allow the load to travel safely through the area. WYDOT would like to remind drivers that may be traveling during this time to plan accordingly.
WYDOT would like to remind drivers to slow down in work zones, be alert and cautious of roadside workers and obey all traffic control devices. For more information on road construction, closures and weather conditions, please visit http://www.wyoroad.info.
