Original Story:

Over 200 miles of Interstate 80 in southern Wyoming is set to remain closed until Tuesday afternoon, the Wyoming Department of Transportation announced Monday.

I-80 between Rock Springs and Laramie is closed due to whiteout conditions caused by heavy snow and strong wind. The extended closure, expected to be lifted between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. Tuesday, is due to the major winter storm moving through the area.

US 30/287 between Laramie and I-80 at Walcott Junction is also closed, with the same estimated reopening time.
