WYDOT/Cody Beers
Wyoming Department of Transportation crews from all around the district worked diligently to get U.S. 20 through Wind River Canyon open as soon as possible. Mud slides closed the road Sunday and it was reopened Wednesday morning. There is reduced speed through a small section of the highway where the major portion of the mud slide occurred.

U.S. 20/Wyoming 789 reopens through
Wind River Canyon

THERMOPOLIS – The Wyoming Department of Transportation reported yesterday that U.S. 20/Wyoming 789 reopened to traffic as of 10:08 a.m. Wednesday.
“For safety’s sake, please show courtesy driving through the canyon,” said Cody Beers, Wyoming Department of Transportation public relations specialist in Riverton. “Please be vigilant of what’s ahead of you and on the road. The soils in the canyon walls are still super-saturated with moisture, and we may see additional hazards in the roadway. Please buckle up and drive safely.”
With the highway reopened through Wind River Canyon, motorists are warned of a stepped-down speed of 65 to 45 to 30 mph through the MP 123 area (big mud slide area near Chimney Rock) in the north end of Wind River Canyon.
“We plan to leave the speed limit at 65 mph through the rest of the canyon,” Beers said. “Motorists should expect enhanced speed enforcement through Wind River Canyon in the coming days.”

River levels stay manageable

By Karla Pomeroy

WORLAND — Big Horn River levels on Wednesday were described as “manageable,” by Washakie County Homeland Security and Emergency Manager Director Kimball Croft.
Croft said releases from the Boysen Reservoir are at 4,300 cubic feet per second. According to a statement from the bureau, they will maintain the releases at 4,300 cfs “until further notice.”
Croft said the releases and the rain haven’t changed the river levels much, noting levels had gone down some Wednesday morning after dropping about six inches Tuesday from its peak Tuesday at noon.
Worland had been under a flood advisory due to the releases increasing from Boysen Reservoir on Monday.
He said the levels are “very manageable,” but will continue to be monitored.
Croft did note that afternoon and evening thunderstorms are forecast for the rest of the week.
