ORIGINAL STORY:

It could be this evening before a 100-mile stretch of Interstate 80 in southeast Wyoming reopens, the Department of Transportation says.

At this time, both lanes are closed between Rawlins and Laramie due to winter conditions. The westbound lanes are also closed from Cheyenne to Laramie due to rolling closure.

As of noon Wednesday, WYDOT estimated it would take crews five to seven hours to get the stretch between Rawlins and Laramie back open.
