A little bit of white joy -- but be cautious on the roads

  • Print

Give yourself some extra driving time if you’re planning on heading outside the Perimeter today.

A light sprinkle of snow and freezing rain overnight has made some highways around Winnipeg a little slick this morning. Most of the concern is located on roads north and east of the city. The province says Highways 6, 7, 8 and 59 heading north are snow covered.

Many highways in the Westman region – including Hwy 10 and Hwy 16 north of Brandon – are also snow covered.

Meanwhile, the following highways are partly covered or have slush-covered sections:

- North, East and West Perimeter

- Trans-Canada Hwy east to Hwy 12

- Henderson Hwy to Hwy 44

- Hwy 15 east to Anola

- Hwy 9 north to Hwy 44

- Hwy 3 to Carman

- Hwy 75 south

Sanding trucks and snow plows are out in some of the problem areas. With Saturday’s forecast calling for a chance of more wet snow/rain, extra precaution is advised when travelling on all these routes.
