Weather impacts possible over mountain passes

WYDOT crews worked through the weekend to open up Wyoming 70 over Battle Pass Monday. The gates were unlocked before noon yesterday. Now both high-elevation scenic byways in Carbon County are open for the season.

Wyoming 130 opened over the Memorial Day Weekend. WYO 130 tops out at more than 10,800 feet, and WYO 70 crosses the Continental Divide at the 9,955-foot Battle Pass.

Travelers over the two mountain ranges are advised that road conditions are wet and the weather turns cold at night. All vehicles, especially motorcycles and bicycles, should watch for patches ice. WYDOT said in a release yesterday that weather-related closures are still possible as the snowpack continues to melt.
