SOUTHEAST WYOMING — The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) has been busy trying to reopen Interstate 80 after being hit by a massive snowstorm this weekend.

Even though WYDOT has been busy trying to reopen not only the interstates, but other highways, it has been keeping the public informed of its progress through social media posts.

“This snow is wet, heavy, and difficult to move around,” according to one of the WYDOT Facebook posts.

“Drifts like these are widespread on I-80 between the Nebraska state line and Elk Mountain. WYDOT is all hands on deck right now, sending crews and heavy equipment from less affected parts of the state to help out where they can,” WYDOT stated about the following photos.

As of March 16 at 3 pm, the estimated opening time is in 21 to 23 hours. For the latest road condition information visit WYDOT’s website.
