U.S. Highway 14-A in Bighorns opens to Burgess Junction

Posted

The stretch of U.S. Highway 14-A between Burgess Junction and Lovell opened for the season on Thursday.

The annual opening of U.S. 14-A is dependent upon favorable weather.

“Drivers are encouraged to drive safely and buckle up,” said Wyoming Department of Transportation maintenance foreman Jason Fleming of Lovell.

For current road conditions, call 511 or go to wyoroad.info.

The annual winter closure of U.S. 14-A, west of Burgess Junction, is at milepost 76.04 on the Lovell side of the Bighorn Mountains. The seasonal road closure at Burgess Junction is just east of milepost 98.1.

WYDOT annually closes this 22-mile stretch of scenic mountain road in the Bighorn Mountains about Nov. 30 at the end of the fall hunting season. It usually opens for the summer by Memorial Day weekend.
