CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Areas of Wyoming are still digging out from the snow and wind that hit the state over the weekend, while travel remains hazardous in many areas.

Wyoming Department of Transportation crews reopened Interstate 25 between Cheyenne and Wheatland Monday.

Several highways, including U.S. 287 in central Wyoming, remained closed Monday afternoon. Wyoming highway officials said they plan to reopen that highway before midnight.

WYDOT warns that many of the highways that are open are slick and may have blowing snow. Gusting wind and black ice are being reported on parts of Interstate 25 and U.S. Highway 20 near Casper.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol reports 22-year-old John Koerber of Jackson died Sunday afternoon after losing control of his car on a snow- and ice-covered road and crashing into a pickup truck. Two people in the truck were injured.
