I-80 remained closed west of the I-76 intersection due to blowing snow.
The westbound interstate had been closed at North Platte Tuesday morning as snow and blizzard conditions impacted portions of western Nebraska into Colorado and Wyoming. The closure left traffic, and especially truckers, stranded at truck stops and the sides of roads while they waited for the road to become passable.
