CRS still working to remove snowdrifts in the South Peace; high winds expected tonight

DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Caribou Road Services is still trying to clear rural roads in the South Peace, but the weather could cause more over the next 24 hours.

CRS crews and several pieces of hired equipment have been working to clear rural roads in the South Peace that saw large snow drifts after a storm Monday night.  CRS says there are only a few roads left that crews are working to clear.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast is calling for winds to increase again Thursday night and into Friday.  Winds could reach up to 60 km/h overnight Thursday and 50 km/h on Friday.

CRS night shift crews will continue to work hard to try to keep everything open Thursday night.

The North Peace could also see high winds Thursday night with gusts up to 50 km/h with the wind diminishing on Friday with gusts up to 20 km/h by the afternoon.
