U.S. 14A opens for summer at noon, Thursday, May 22


Maintenance crews from the Wyoming Department of Transportation will open U.S. 14A west of Burgess Junction for the summer at noon Thursday, May 22.


Burgess Junction crews have broken through and met up with crews from Lovell.  Crews from both areas continue cleaning up the roadway, fixing the major road slide area on the Lovell side of the mountain. 


WYDOT seasonally opens this 22-mile stretch of scenic mountain road in the Big Horn Mountains of north-central Wyoming in mid- to late-May. It usually closes every fall at the end of the fall hunting season.


The annual winter closure of U.S. 14A, west of Burgess Junction, occurs at milepost 76.04 on the Lovell side of the Big Horn Mountains. The seasonal road closure at Burgess Junction is just east of milepost 98.1.
