Be Patient In Eclipse Traffic

The Wyoming Highway Patrol has seen a substantial increase in traffic on Wyoming’s highways for the 2017 solar eclipse event, so drivers are being reminded that heavy traffic congestion should be expected in certain areas across the state.  All motorists should follow the law and slow down or move over for law enforcement and vehicles with flashing lights. There have also been several vehicle versus wildlife crashes in the state over the weekend, so drivers should be on the look out for wildlife. At the conclusion of the solar eclipse, motorists may experience long delays on Wyoming Highways as travelers are heading home. This will especially be the case along the I-25 corridor. Make sure you have plenty of food, water, and fuel. Troopers across the state are working extended shifts to ensure the public will remain safe. All drivers should limit distractions within the vehicle and focus on driving. If you do see traffic coming to a near stop or stand still, be patient.
