Currently, both lanes between Cheyenne and Wheatland and the southbound lanes between Wheatland and Glendo are closed due to winter conditions.

As of 2 p.m., WYDOT estimated it would take crews 22 to 24 hours to get the roughly 110-mile stretch back open.

"Ground blizzards, high wind, and reduced visibility will impact all of southeast Wyoming today," WYDOT District 1 said in a Facebook post.

Travelers are encouraged to call 511 or visit wyoroad.info for up-to-the-minute road closure and road condition information, and to take alternate routes if possible.
