Cheyenne, Wyo. - Slick roads on Monday morning (10/9/17) have led to a partial closure of Interstate-80.

As of 8am, the Wyoming Department of Transportation has closed the interstate between Cheyenne and Rawlins. Although no wrecks have been reported, snow and icy conditions have created dangerous conditions.

US 30/287 between Rock River and WY 34 is also closed, as well as WY 210 between Curt Gowdy State Park and I-80. WYDOT said it hoped to have the interstate reopened sometime Monday afternoon.

Cheyenne received about 5 inches of snow with up to 3 more possible before the storm ended later Monday.
