Hundreds of miles of Interstate 80 in Wyoming have been closed due to winter conditions and rolling closures.

Currently, the eastbound lanes between Rock Springs and Rawlins are closed due to rolling closure, both lanes between Rawlins and Laramie are closed due to winter conditions, and the westbound lanes between Laramie and Cheyenne are closed due to rolling closure.

As of 8 a.m., the Wyoming Department of Transportation estimated it would take crews five to seven hours to get the stretch back open.
