US 14/16 between Ucross and Gillette is closed to allow crews to clear the area and repair any damage caused by Sunday night’s storm.
The road was already torn up due to a WYDOT construction project, but the heavy rains made the road muddy and impossible to drive on.
The construction is at mile post 60-69 close to Spotted Horse. It is expected to re-open late afternoon today.
I-90 from Buffalo to Gillette is re-opened as of 8:30 AM this morning. It was closed last night due to heavy rain and around 8-10 inches of hail that caused flash floods at Dead Horse Creek.
Water has receded but commuters are reminded to be cautious and slowdown while driving through the area.
