Wyoming Department of Transportation's (WYDOT) Travel Information Map
WYDOT's internet-based Travel Information Map provides regularly updated travel information, including weather and road conditions, to the public and other users. The tool contains a map of the state depicting highway routes, the location of rest areas and construction projects, road closures, alerts, as well as other information for the traveler. Routes are color-coded to indicate current road surface and weather conditions as reported from 26 roadside weather stations. A "zoom" feature allows viewers to hone in on a particular area to see more detailed information. To view the Travel Information Map, click here.
