I-90 closures continue through Thurs.

SHERIDAN — The Wyoming Department of Transportation announced a series of one-hour road closures on Interstate 90. The closures are to allow the contractor, Casper Electric, to place the steel structures for the Overhead Dynamic Message Signs.

Tonight, beginning at 10 p.m., there will be an hour-long road closure of the eastbound lanes of I-90 at mile post 54.33, just west of Buffalo before the Rock Creek Exit. The road will close for approximately one hour and then re-open to let traffic through and then will close again for an additional hour. Motorists are encouraged to use an alternate route.

Wednesday night, beginning at 10 p.m., there will be an hour-long road closure of the westbound Lanes of I-90 at mile post 18.18, just west of Sheridan between exit 21 at K-Mart and the Port of Entry. The road will close for approximately one hour and then re-open to let traffic through and then will close again for an additional hour.

WYDOT is installing 19 total Dynamic Message Signs at 10 locations in the northeast corner of Wyoming with this project.

Dynamic Message Signs often are electronic traffic signs often used on roadways to give travelers information about specific events such as road conditions, accidents, roadwork zones, amber alerts, road closures and any other messages that may be pertinent to the traveling public.
