WORLAND, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management Worland Field Office has temporarily closed Cactus Drive, located 4.5 miles east of Worland and 1.2 miles south of U.S. Highway 16.
The road can no longer support vehicles crossing the drainage culvert and will remain closed while the damage is assessed and until repairs can be completed.
"For your safety and to prevent further resource damage, we need to temporarily close Cactus Drive," said BLM Worland Field Manager Mike Phillips. “We appreciate your patience while the needed repairs are completed.”
This year's heavy precipitation has resulted in damage to many backcountry roads across the Bighorn Basin. Please travel safely and turn around if in doubt about a road’s stability.
