I-80 Closure for Rockfall Mitigation Project
On Thursday and Friday, June 17 and 18, the eastbound lane out of Laramie will be closed briefly so that crews can work on a rockfall mitigation project in Telephone Canyon.
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.
