State Route 130, also known as WYO 130 is a state route in the U.S. state of Wyoming. The road forms an east-west route through the Snowy Range, from Walcott to Laramie. WYO 130 is 159 kilometers long.

Travel directions

Landscape through the Snowy Range.

WYO 130 begins near the village of Wolcott on a junction with Interstate 80. The road leads south from Wolcott for about 50 kilometers through a fairly flat area and passes through the village of Saratoga. WYO 230 exits south of Saratoga. The road then turns east and enters the Snowy Range. The road rises here from 2,100 to more than 3,200 meters. The road leads through a spectacular mountain area with lakes and cliffs around the 3,661 meter high Medicine Bow Peak. The road goes over the Snowy Range Pass(3,315m). This route is considered one of the most beautiful in Wyoming. Then one descends to the village of Centennial, which lies at an altitude of 2,400 meters. To the east, the terrain is flatter and the road crosses the steppe to the university town of Laramie, where WYO 130 ends again at WYO 230.

History

The road originally ran only from Saratoga to Laramie over the Snowy Range Pass. The road was later extended north to Wolcott. The road is not kept open in the winter, requiring traffic to detour via I-80 or US 30 north or WYO 230 south, passing through the state of Colorado.

Traffic intensities

1,200 vehicles travel daily between Wolcott and Saratoga and 500 vehicles across the Snowy Range Pass. This rises to 1,200 vehicles at Laramie Airport.
