9:30AM update: I-80 CLOSED across most of Wyoming due to winter conditions. I-25 CLOSED from Cheyenne north to about mid-part of the state. South Pass also closed as of the time of this report. If you’re stuck in the road closure and anxious to get moving, but someplace safe and comfortable, our best advice is to sit tight and find something to do where you’re at for a couple of hours and let the storm move east. Road crews are working hard to clear the road, but need to let storm move through so visibility improves so you can see to drive. I-80 on western part of state estimated to reopen after 11AM-ish. We have blue sky here on west side of state now behind the storm as it moves eastward. WYDOT reporting they hope to have I-80 reopened after 2PM-ish on east side of the state.
