The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is warning of slippery sections on all of the major Highways in the region, including Highway 97 North and South, and Highways 2 and 49 from the British Columbia-Alberta border to Dawson Creek. More detailed information can be found online at www.drivebc.ca.

In the North Peace, Fort St. John RCMP have confirmed weather was a factor in a single-vehicle rollover this morning at around 10 a.m. on Highway 29 about 10 kilometres from the junction with Highway 97 near the city. The driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

In the South Peace, the roads remain mostly bare and dry, with a few slippery sections due to compact snow, said Eric Chapman, operations manager for Caribou Road Services, the road maintenance contractor in the South Peace. He said only one to two centimetres of snow fell in some areas of the region, though he said it appears to be a bit heavier in the Chetwynd area and into the Pine Pass.

Motorists are advised to slow down and allow for appropriate braking time as conditions dictate.
