CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Parsley Bridge has recently been reopened to traffic, the Wyoming Department of Transportation announced today.

Numerous collisions in the past have caused several closures and the need for frequent repairs to the bridge. The new bridge has an increased clearance height above I-80 which should mitigate future collisions and closures at the location.

Due to weather and material delays this season, WYDOT reports that there may be more brief closures next year for some minor adjustments. All structural work has been completed, however.
