It’s icy out there today

Road conditions are tricky at best around the area this morning

  • Dec. 17, 2011 12:00 p.m.

A TRAVEL advisory is in effect west of Terrace this morning for those venturing out on Hwy16.

There’s a combination of heavy snowfall and pooling water on stretches of the highway from Agate Creek Bridge to Terrace.

There’s been a light snow falling most of the night, resembling freezing rain in some locations.

That’s added to considerable snowfall already this winter.

Road reports elsewhere in the area contain four words – Compact snow with slippery sections.

An accident between two vehicles on Hwy16 between Vanderhoof and Prince George early last evening resulted in injuries and a road closure.

RCMP officers in that area were telling people to stay off the roads.

“Police continue to see vehicles travelling in excess of the speed limit, which is completely inappropriate in these weather and road conditions.  Please, use some common sense….The roads are not just wet, they are icy,” read one release from police in the Prince George area.
