ROCK SPRINGS — The Wyoming Department of Transportation and contract crews from IHC SCOTT Inc., will be closing the westbound off-ramp at exit 111, Middle Baxter Road, as part of a project taking place East of Rock Springs on Interstate 80.
The closures will take place from today, August 16 through Saturday, August 21, while they install a new cattle guard.
For those traveling to the airport from Rock Springs, the airport exit 111eastbound off-ramp will still be available. Traffic traveling westbound to the airport or Middle Baxter Road will have to detour on exit 122 or travel to Rock Springs and circle back.

The completion date for this project is set for November 30, 2021.
