Road Closures Strand Passengers
During last weekend snowstorm, multiple road closures stranded passengers in St. Francis. Those who were unluckily enough to get stuck in the weather we rescued by the Cheyenne County Sheriffs Dept. and brought back to the city. Once the local hotels were full, the shelter at the Methodist Church was a welcoming place for out-of-towners.
During the peak of the storm, I-70 was closed from the state line to Limon, CO. Hwy 36 was closed east to Byers. Highway 27 was also closed in both north and south directions.
