GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. – The Grande Prairie RCMP are warning motorists of poor road conditions near the community.

Motorists are being told to stay at home unless it’s absolutely necessary due to icy conditions.  The RCMP were called to a multi-vehicle collision south of the city along Highway 40 at the Cutbank River.  Numerous vehicles are reported to be in the ditch along the highway.

The RCMP are asking all motorists to avoid travel around Grande Prairie.  Grande Prairie is currently under a freezing rain warning.  A band of freezing rain has developed near the community and should continue until early Wednesday morning.

As the precipitation moves to the east, air temperatures are expected to rise above zero in some areas, but roadways and sidewalks will remain below freezing.
