UPDATE: Westbound I-80 Reopens After 7 1/2-Hour Closure
5:03 P.M. UPDATE:
Interstate 80 has reopened to all traffic in both directions.
A black ice advisory is in effect between Happy Jack Road and Buford.
For the second time today, westbound Interstate 80 between Cheyenne and Laramie has been closed due to a crash.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation reported the closure shortly after 3:30 p.m., just minutes after announcing the stretch, which had been closed for six hours due to a crash near the Summit, had reopened.
As of 3 p.m., WYDOT estimated it would take crews three to four hours to get the interstate back open.
Drivers are encouraged to call 511 or go to wyoroad.info for the latest road conditions.
