FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A travel advisory has been issued for all highways north of the Peace River.

A winter storm warning remains in place for the B.C. Peace.  The heavy snow and strong winds have caused dangerous road conditions. YRB North Peace Quality Manager Greg McNeil said the travel advisory was issued just before midnight Friday morning. McNeil said that heavy winds and snowfall have caused hazardous driving conditions, and road maintenance crews are recommending that all non-essential travel stop until the travel advisory has ended.

Caribou Road Services previously issued a travel advisory for Highway 97 between Chetwynd and Taylor on Thursday evening. The arctic front that brought the winter storm warning will stick around until Friday with some areas receiving up to 25 cm of snow.
