Frequently Asked Questions

Media Pages

How is this page organized?
  Unlike other pages on this site, the media pages are organized by condition rather than location. Instead of listing all the road conditions for a particular location, these pages list all the locations impacted by a specific road condition. The impacted routes are then grouped by five geographic regions. Click here to view a map of regional boundaries. https://www.wyoroad.info/highway/Region_Map_20130626.pdf
What conditions and advisories are posted?
  The page lists the following conditions:
Surface Conditions

For complete information, view other pages or maps available at www.wyoroad.info. Click here to view definitions of each condition and advisory. https://www.wyoroad.info/Highway/definitions.html
What if there aren’t any closed roads or high impact level road conditions?
  The screen will display the following: "Minimal travel impacts expected, use general caution."
Why is the "Direction" field blank?
  If road conditions impact only one lane of travel, it will be specified. If the field is blank, travel is impacted in both directions.
Why do it this way?
  This page was created to help the media report the most serious road condition information. The format was designed to allow an at-a-glance look at all the areas in the state or a region. Because it includes only the most severe road impacts, travelers are encouraged to use other pages or maps to assess travel conditions.
