THERMOPOLIS, Wyo. (AP) - Crews have finished repairing damage caused by a truck that crashed in Wind River Canyon last week.

Repair work has slowed down traffic on U.S. 20/Highway 789 since a semi-trailer hauling sugar crashed through a guardrail on U.S. 20/Highway 789 on Thursday night, going over a steep embankment and landing on the edge of the Wind River. The Wyoming Department of Transportation says it took two days to remove the wreckage and that the guardrail was replaced on Sunday.

A reduced speed limit of 30 mph remains in place Monday but the speed limit is scheduled to return to 65 mph Tuesday after the temporary speed limit signs are removed.

The driver only suffered bumps and bruises and was cited for driving too fast for the slick and snowy conditions.
