Terrace and area schools are open

But bus runs to three rural areas have been cancelled

  • Jan. 24, 2012 7:00 a.m.

COAST MOUNTAINS schools are open today despite large amounts of snow now falling.

But there is no bus service to Lakelse Lake, to Old Remo and to Jackpine Flats.

At first, runs were to be delayed so buses could chain up but the decision then followed to cancel the service altogether.

“All other runs are operating as usual although delays could take place due to the overnight snowfall. All schools are open,” reports Coast Mountains school superintendent Nancy Wells.

And for those venturing out, factor in taking extra time to get to work, to school or to errands.

Environment Canada is predicting a significant snowfall in the region today.

And the highways ministry has placed travel advisories on Hwy37 south to Kitimat from Terrace and from Terrace west on Hwy16 because of limited visibility caused by the heavy snowfall.
