Laramie County Emergency Management is asking people not to drive on county roads in eastern Laramie County due to winter road conditions.
The agency also says the county’s public works crews are busy keeping roads open and will not be able to help people who are stranded at the side of the road.
Travel conditions are unlikely to improve much over the next few days with winds of up to 65 mph expected in southeastern Wyoming on Thursday and Friday and more snow expected this weekend.
Emergency Management issued the following statement this morning [Jan. 25]:
Laramie County Public Works works diligently to keep the county roads open to the public. However, we battle snow and snow flurries and do our best to keep up. To provide our citizens with a safe transportation network, we ask the public to travel only if absolutely necessary when Wyoming winds pick up. If you must travel please be careful as we are dealing with large snow drifts which can be deceiving.
Note: Laramie County Public Works employees are focused on keeping roads open and cannot assist you if you are stuck on the side of the road. If you have an emergency, please call 911 for assistance.
