CHEYENNE -- Travel is restricted south of Cheyenne and Laramie because of flooding in Colorado.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation has closed southbound Interstate 25 and U.S. 85 out of Cheyenne and U.S. 287 south of Laramie.

The roadways in Wyoming are in good shape, but some road surfaces on the Colorado side have water flowing over them in places and mudslides.

I-25 was closed to all traffic Friday afternoon, and the route remained closed Saturday. Emergency traffic and local Colorado residents were permitted to use U.S. 85 and 287 to get home. No commercial vehicle traffic will be allowed until further notice.
