That’s according to the agency’s Wyoming Road and Travel website. According to the website, as of 11 a.m. I-25 was closed to light, high-profile vehicles from Casper to the Colorado state line.

That stretch of highway was also rated as an “extreme blow over risk.” interstate 80 likewise was closed to light, high-profile vehicles from Walcott Junction to Cheyenne, with that stretch of road again listed as an “extreme blow over risk.”

The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service has southeast Wyoming under a High Wind Warning until this evening, with winds of up to 80 miles per hour possible.
