MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyo. (KIFI) - From 11 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11 to 4 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, the road between Tower Junction and Mammoth Hot Springs will close temporarily while crews extricate the final part of a cement truck.

On the evening of Monday, Aug. 28, a cement truck rolled off the road and onto a minivan near Tower Junction. The five occupants of the minivan were extricated and moved to safety. Crews removed parts of the cement truck; however, due to the hardened cement inside, the drum of the truck had to remain on scene until special equipment could arrive to assist with removal.

All lanes of travel will be closed during the operations to ensure visitor safety.
