WYDOT District 1 provided an update, stating that the Wyoming Highway Patrol is currently throwing sand under semi trucks in order to gain traction.

"The icy conditions have traffic stalled on I-80. Our plows are out working to make conditions safe to re-open the highways as soon as possible."

Additionally, a photo was taken on I-80, mile marker 331 westbound between Cheyenne and Laramie by the Cheyenne Area Maintenance Supervisor.

"The road surface is slick with ice and blowing snow, causing low visibility and treacherous conditions."

WYDOT reports that, as of 10:34 a.m., the estimated opening time is 5 to 7 hours.
