FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Residents in the Peace region should avoid travel on local highways after reports of black ice and heavy snow.
Reports from social media and to Energeticcity.ca, suggest highways in the region are covered in black ice. On top of the black ice, the heavy snow is making highways difficult to travel from Fort St. John to Edmonton.
Yellowhead Road and Bridge is also asking residents to report slippery roads to help crews respond as quickly as possible.

In Alberta, Highway 43 from the B.C. border to Valleyview is listed as snow covered and icy.
