Original story:

I-80 between Laramie and Cheyenne is closed eastbound due to multiple crashes.

Wyoming Highway Patrol Sgt. Duane Ellis said three separate crashes have closed the lane and traffic in the eastbound lane is backed up for three miles.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation estimates the road opening time is between 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm today.

WYDOT warns travelers that parking on the roadway is prohibited and delays WYDOT from opening the road. Other travelers should expect reduced visibility.

US Highway 287 southbound is also closed due to a crash. The northbound direction is open. WYDOT said to expect slick roads and snowfall.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
