Casper officials issue emergency travel only

No city crews available to assist stranded motorists

Casper, Wyoming (March 14, 2021) – Casper City officials have issued an emergency travel only on Casper streets.  Snow removal crews have been on shifts covering twenty-four hours since Saturday in anticipation of the snowstorm.  “Please consider your vehicle’s clearance.  If it is not high enough to clear the deep snow, you risk becoming stranded.  City crews are not available to assist stranded motorists.  If you have a true emergency, call 911,” stated Streets Manager Shad Rodgers.  Streets crews are only able to keep the thoroughfares, known as arterials, plowed. Wyoming Highways throughout Casper are maintained separately by Wyoming Department of Transportation snow removal crews.  More information on City of Casper snow removal and links to Wyoming Department of Transportation snow removal is available at https://www.casperwy.gov/residents/roads_and_parking/snow_plowing/snow_routes.
