Mainroad road and weather update

Rising temperatures and light rainfall are currently being experienced in the southern half of the service area, and this is producing slippery conditions throughout, particularly on side roads.

Fluctuating temperatures and periodic rainfall can be expected for at least the next 24 hours. Water ponding and potholes can be expected to develop as well.

Mainroad crews are patrolling,  salting and sanding throughout. Please exercise extreme caution on all routes today.

Motorists are also reminded that this weekend is Family day in Alberta so heavy traffic volumes between borders and resort/recreational areas can be expected. Avalanche hazard ratings are increasing due to the changing weather conditions as well. Be prepared for winter driving conditions and check DriveBC before heading out.
