Wyoming’s Seasonal Roads Closed For 2014-2015 Winter and Spring
Four of the most scenic roads in the Cowboy State, can no longer be accessed by motor vehicle traffic.
All seasonal roads in Wyoming are now closed for the winter, and most of spring.
On Monday, November 24th WYDOT crews closed the gates on a 22-mile stretch of Wyoming State Highway 70 between Encampment and Baggs, as well as a 22-mile stretch of US Highway 14A west of Burgess Junction.
Those sections of roads receive too much snow and see too little vehicle traffic, that plowing the road is impractical.
WYDOT had originally targeted December 1st, as the day to close US Highway 14A, but a recent winter storm altered those plans.
Also, a 13-mile stretch of Wyoming State Highway 130 west of Centennial, closed about two weeks ago, and US Highway 212 over the Beartooth Pass closed in middle October.
All seasonal roads usually don't reopen again, until sometime around Memorial Day.
