TOOELE COUNTY, Utah, July 23, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Semi-trucks are prohibited on Interstate 80 between Tooele and Wendover Thursday evening due to high winds.

A tweet from UDOT Traffic at 6:15 p.m. said: “Roadway Restrictions: I-80 in Tooele County, semi-trucks, RV’s, and other high profile vehicles prohibited due to high winds between mile post 0 (Wendover) and mile post 99 (Tooele).”
