CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Traffic is flowing again on all major interstates and highways in Wyoming although there are still slick and windy areas slowing speeds.

Long sections of Interstate 80 and other highways in southern Wyoming were closed most of Wednesday because of blowing snow and strong winds.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol reported 87 crashes statewide from the early morning hours of Tuesday until 9:30 a.m. Thursday. Thirty-four involved injury and one resulted in two fatalities.

On Thursday morning, most roads around the state were open but the Wyoming Department of Transportation said some roads, especially in the southeast part of the state, still had slick spots and some blowing snow.

The agency advised against light trailers on I-80 between Laramie and Walcott Junction on Thursday.
