BURGESS JUNCTION, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Transportation plans to close a 22-mile stretch of highway over the Big Horn Mountains at the end of November.

Crews from the state highway department intend to close U.S. 14-A, west of Burgess Junction, for the winter on Nov. 30. The department typically closes the road at the end of the fall hunting season.

Robin Nichols is WYDOT maintenance supervisor in Basin. Nichols say the state may close the highway sooner if there's a significant snowstorm and says hunters should monitor weather forecasts and consider camping hear the highway.
