LARAMIE, Wyo. – As work continues on several bridges on Interstate 80 in eastern Carbon County, the Wagonhound interchange and rest area (Exit 267) is expected to remain closed through September.

Laramie - This means that hunters that use Wagonhound Road to access the Wick/Beumee Wildlife Habitat Management Area will be unable to do so until construction is complete.
Instead, hunters wanting to go to the Wick WHMA should use the exit seven miles to the west, or County Road 402 (Exit 260) to get to the parcel.

Construction crews have been working to replace the Interstate 80 bridge decks at the Wagonhound interchange since June.
Currently, all I-80 traffic is being diverted onto the exit and entrance ramps of Exit 267 to detour around the bridges. No traffic is allowed to exit at Wagonhound Road, including to the Wagonhound Rest Area.
The next WYDOT-operated rest areas are at Fort Steele for westbound traffic and the Summit for eastbound traffic.
The bridge replacement is part of a larger bridge rehabilitation project on the I-80 corridor between Laramie and Rawlins.
As always, drivers should exercise caution and drive carefully through work zones and should be aware of traffic patterns in the work area.
Reiman Corp. is the contractor for the project.
