ENCAMPMENT — The highway over Battle Pass is closed for the winter.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation reports winds have drifted snow over Wyoming Highway 70 on Battle Pass, between Encampment and Baggs. The road will stay closed for the season.
Wyoming Highway 130 over the Snowy Range already is closed about eight miles above Centennial on the east side of the range, and above Ryan Park on the west side.
High elevations and heavy snowfall on the highways together with low traffic make it impractical to keep them open in the winter. Both highways usually reopen some time in May.
