Section of Walterscheid Blvd. closed, I-80 reduced to one lane after truck cargo strikes bridge

September 11, 2017

Bridge-Damages.jpgCHEYENNE, Wyo. – Walterscheid Boulevard is closed between Deming Drive and Fox Farm Road after a truck carrying heavy equipment struck the bridge that carries Interstate 80 over Walterscheid Friday afternoon, Sept. 8.

The right lane of I-80 eastbound will also be closed over that bridge indefinitely.

The I-80 closure is a precaution until the bridge can be inspected, and Walterscheid is closed as a preventative measure in case any debris falls from underneath the bridge.

WYDOT bridge inspectors will be inspecting the bridge next week.

Further information will be provided when it becomes available.
