The Wyoming Department of Transportation has announced that beginning Saturday July, 9th, Interstate 90 will be closed at the Meade Creek exit to west bound traffic due to landslides. A media release issued by WYDOT states that the slides are part of a current construction project.
The contractor has been in the process of repairing two separate slides in the east bound lanes of I-90 between milepost 31 and 33, diverting traffic to the west bound lanes. WYDOT Region 4 Public Involvement Specialist Ronda Holwell explains that recent developments have forced the closure.
Holwell says that motorists traveling south on I-90 will encounter slower speeds and narrowed lanes. It's those heading back to Sheridan from the south that will encounter the biggest inconvenience.
Holwell wanted motorists to keep in mind the congestion this may cause at times on Brundage Lane.
Holwell said that they hope to move both lanes of traffic back over to the east bound lane by early August.
