(Riverton, Wyo.) – Northwest Wyoming drivers will benefit this winter and in the future with the installation of eight new web cameras located throughout central and northwest Wyoming.

Web cameras are now operational on Beaver Rim, 5.99 miles west of the Sweetwater Station Rest Area on U.S. 287; at Kinnear Junction, one mile west of Kinnear on U.S. 26 west of Riverton; in Wind River Canyon, 9.5 miles south of Thermopolis on U.S. 20/Wyoming 789; on Meeteetse Rim, 9.5 miles north of Meeteetse on Wyoming 120; and on Skull Creek Hill, eight miles north of Cody on Wyoming 120.
“These new WYDOT web cameras will help drivers make good choices about winter travel before heading out there this winter,” said Russ Dowdy, Wyoming Department of Transportation maintenance foreman in Thermopolis. “And internally within WYDOT, these web cameras will help improve our winter plowing efforts, and should enhance public safety.”
For drivers heading south between Lander/Riverton, Jeffrey City and Rawlins, three other new web cameras are also operational. They are located 9.6 miles west of Jeffrey City; at Muddy Gap at the junction of Wyoming 220/Wyoming 789 and U.S. 287, and on Willow Hill, 11.6 miles north of Rawlins on U.S. 287.
