Starting at about 9 am on each of the above days, the eastbound lanes will be closed to all traffic for about 30 minutes as crews work to remove boulders from the rock face near mile marker 319.

The closures are necessary for public safety due to the size of the rocks and the possibility that they could fall onto traffic.

Motorists planning to drive eastbound out of Laramie either morning are encouraged to plan alternate routes or travel times.

In any work zone, motorists are encouraged to avoid distractions like cell phones and to obey all posted signs and other traffic control.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
