RIVERTON, Wyo. — U.S. 26 has reopened in central Wyoming as the Wind River slowly recedes, dropping more than a foot since Monday.
All major roads are now open in Fremont County although rivers continue to run high from recent rain and runoff from the melting mountain snowpack.
Flood warnings continued Tuesday for Wind and Little Wind rivers in Fremont County as well as the South Fork of the Shoshone River in Park County and the Green and New Fork rivers in Sublette and Lincoln counties.
Grand Teton National Park officials report that high water has caused erosion problems on some roads. The National Park Service is making repairs where it can and monitoring the situation for public safety.
