UPDATED: Overturned Semi Causes Outer Drive Closure
Outer Drive is closed From Casper Mountain Road to E. 21st Street due to an overturned semi. The Wyoming Department of Transportation is advising no travel at all on Wyoming BLVD (Outer Drive) due to extreme winds.
According to Detective John Hatcher of the Casper PD, "I was just contacted by our Traffic Sergeant Scott Jones that Outer Drive from Casper Mountain Road to E. 21st Street is closed. A semi-truck has turned over causing road blockage. Also the high wind is causing white out conditions. People will not be able to access Outer Drive by South McKinley Street. They will be turned around to go back down McKinley. WHP should be the contact about the semi overturned."
According to Jeff Goetz at WYDOT, "we just had a 72 mph wind gust at McKinley Street. The sustained wind speed is 52 mph from the south."
