BLM shares the following:

THERMOPOLIS, Wyo. – The Worland Field Office has temporarily closed a portion of Rankin Basin Road (BLM Road 1304) until further notice due to a washout caused by flash floods. Ensuring safe access to public lands is a BLM priority.


Rankin Basin Road is located east of U.S. Hwy. 120, between Thermopolis and Meeteetse. The BLM has placed barricades at either side of the washout. There may be other roads with similar damage in the area, so travel safely in the backcountry and turn around if in doubt about a road’s stability or safety.
