Random WY fences, turn out to not be that random

Posted by msdesign21 | Posted in You trippin! | Posted on 30-08-2010



As you drive along I-80 toward Rock Springs, WY you may notice many fences that seem to be randomly placed along the road side. It has been bugging me for the past 50 miles, not knowing what these unconnected fences were trying to do, so I found this post in a forum for my answer:

These are snow fences to prevent ground blizzards which happen in flat, windy places. Even if the snow isn’t falling from the sky, the wind-whipped snow can create very dangerous conditions on roadways – zero visibility. These fences help prevent that.

So, aahh now I can relax knowing what these damn things were for.
