The Wyoming Department of Transportation strives to provide accurate and timely information concerning roadway conditions to the traveling public. Most of our condition reports are based on visual inspection of the roadways. WYDOT needs citizens to help in reporting road conditions because the department doesn't have the manpower or financial resources to monitor conditions on every mile of its highway system 24 hours a day. If you would like to volunteer for the Enhanced Citizen-Assisted Reporting program please click on the ECAR icon below and follow the application process.
