WYDOT Closes U.S. 14A

The Wyoming Department of Transportation has officially closed U.S. Highway 14A for the winter season. According to a news release from WYDOT, this 22-mile stretch is no stranger to the closure as it happens seasonally at the end of the fall hunting season. WYDOT Highway Maintenance Supervisor Dustin Hockett said that heavy snows and relatively light traffic during the winter months makes snow removal of that portion of the roadway in the Bighorn National Forest impractical.

This seasonal closure ties in with WYDOT’s mission of providing a safe, high quality, and efficient transportation system for the citizens of Wyoming. In the interim, motorists can use U.S. 14 via Granite Pass and Greybull to travel to and from Sheridan or Lovell. Those traveling are always encouraged to check current road conditions for all routes before departing. WYDOT will open U.S. 14A on or before Memorial Day weekend.
