I-80 remains closed from Cheyenne to Evanston due to high winds, blowing snow and significantly reduced visibility.

Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers are assisting stranded motorists in the Arlington/Elk Mountain area, where 40 to 45 m.p.h. sustained winds with gusts in excess of 60 m.p.h. are causing snow to drift and making the roadway icy.

Wyoming Department of Transportation Spokesman Ross Doman says if the winds ramp down this afternoon, as forecast, they hope to have the roadway reopened by late afternoon.
