(LARAMIE, Wyo.)  November 3, 2014 – A temporary, two-day closure of Forest Road 500 on the Medicine Bow National Forest will occur Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 4-5, of this week.

U.S. Forest Service crews will be replacing a worn-out culvert just west of the junction of the 500 road with Forest Road 513, which is approximately two miles west of Albany, Wyo.

Forest users in this area of the Laramie Ranger District (LRD) should be aware of the short-term closure and should plan accordingly. Alternate routes to circumvent the closure are available to the south using the 513, 517, 512 and 543 roads.
