WYDOT reopens Fort Steele rest area

November 1, 2016

Motorists traveling on I-80 between Rawlins and Laramie will now be able to access the Fort Steele rest area.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation reopened the Fort Steele rest area on Tuesday. Earlier this year, WYDOT closed the rest area due to a main water pump failure. That and other mechanical issues have now been fixed. WYDOT also has two operators in place who have the certifications to oversee that facility.
