Wyoming 70 over Battle Pass reopens

Cheyenne, Wyo. – Battle Pass in southern Wyoming has opened for the season but the road still can't be used for through traffic.

Wyoming 70 between Encampment and Baggs opened Friday. However, the highway is still impassable in both directions because of a landslide 31 miles east of Baggs.

The affected roadway is about 1,000 feet long. State geologists are studying ways to rebuild the highway. It's expected to take at least six weeks for the preliminary results of drilling in the area to be evaluated.
