FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The travel advisory issued for the B.C. Peace has been lifted for the major highways, but rural routes are still difficult to travel on.

Yellowhead Road and Bridge says the main paved roads in the North Peace area are now open and safe to travel on.  YRB staff and contractors are still working to clear the snow drifts from side roads.

In the South Peace, Caribou Road Services said the weather station at 97 south and the Braden Road reports that area saw 83 cm of snow since March 1.  Visibility on highways in the South Peace remains an issue at this time and motorists are advised to travel with caution and to road conditions.

 If you plan on heading to Fort Nelson, the travel advisory for that region has also been lifted.  Highway 97 from Wonowon to Fort Nelson is still experiencing blowing snow and limited visibility.
