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.
