WYOMING DRIVING TIPS
Yellowstone is in the midst of a 20-year highway-repair program, so check for road closings on your route before setting out. A portion of the northwest side of the Lower Loop closed for the season on August 17; for other alerts, call the Yellowstone Current Road Report Hotline (307/344-2117). For advisories elsewhere in the state, consult the Wyoming Department of Transportation's Travel Information Service (888/996-7623, wyoroad.info).
