The Wyoming Department of Transportation is temporarily closing state Highway 28 between Farson and Lander today to recover a semitrailer that went off the road and down an embankment during a blizzard last week.

The closure is expected from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to WYDOT. The truck was carrying a 114,000-pound load of molten sulfur. It lies 200 feet down a steep embankment about 23 miles south of Lander.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol urges motorists to use the Wyoming511 app for updates and alternative routes.
