Crews from the Wyoming Department of Transportation are preparing to close US 14A west of Burgess Junction for the winter at noon Monday, November 18. WYDOT seasonally closes this 22-mile stretch of scenic mountain road in the Big Horn Mountains of north-central Wyoming at the end of the fall hunting season.
Seasonal road closure gates are located at Burgess Junction (just east of milepost 98.1) and on the Lovell side of the mountain near milepost 76.04. During the time the road is closed, motorists can use US 14 via Granite Pass and Greybull as an alternative route from Sheridan to Lovell. WYDOT will open US 14A next spring after crews spend a projected three weeks to remove the winter snowpack on the road.
