Wyoming roads ready for increased traffic for UW game Saturday

December 1, 2016

The Wyoming Department of Transportation is ready for the increase in traffic going to Saturday’s University of Wyoming football game for the Mountain West Conference championship.

No delays are anticipated for motorists due to construction or maintenance on I-80, WYO 287, WYO 487, WYO 34 and US 30, which are the routes drivers can use to get to Laramie.

WYDOT is partnering with the University of Wyoming to ensure travelers can get to the game with no issues. Weather would be the only thing that could impact travel, but conditions are expected to be decent and WYDOT is ready just in case.

“If we do have weather we’re prepared, as always,” said Tom DeHoff, district engineer out of Laramie. “We’ll have workers on standby just in case and we’ll be able to take care of anything that happens.”

WYDOT’s partnership with UW and the work it does on its roads on a daily basis is in line with the department’s goals of improving safety on the state transportation system, serving its customers and taking care of all physical aspects of the state transportation system.

“We want to make sure everyone gets to the game safely and gets home safely,” DeHoff said.
