With gusty winds being reported throughout much of the state, and with travel advisories posted throughout central and southern Wyoming, officials with the Wyoming Department of Transportation are reminding travelers to drive cautiously.

Cheyenne WYDOT public information officer Doug McGee says it’s critical to have some knowledge of road and highway conditions prior to travel.

“WYDOT always recommends that you know before you go, and there are a number of ways to do that,” McGee said. “In Wyoming, you can just dial 511, or you can visit our website where there are all sorts of ways to view conditions throughout the state.”

Extreme winter weather closed portions of Interstate 80 east of Cheyenne on Thursday. WYDOT also posted advisories for slick roads and gusty winds for roads south of Casper, including Wyoming Highway 287 and Interstate 25.

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Riverton have most of the state under a wind advisory. On Thursday, NWS meteorologists posted a winter weather advisory and a high wind warning for southeastern Wyoming.
