A few travel advisories remained in effect Wednesday morning after a tough night on highways throughout Central Saskatchewan.
RCMP were called out to a number of collisions in the Maidstone and Lloydminster areas caused by icy conditions along Highway 16, Highway 21 and Highway 303.
Another incident saw a semi jacknifed Tuesday night in the northbound lane of Highway 11 near Lumsden, causing delays for several hours until the truck could be emptied and removed from the scene.
By Wednesday morning, the province’s Highway Hotline reported slippery conditions on every major highway in the Saskatoon area. The service was recommending drivers avoid travel Wednesday morning on Highway 7 betweeen Delisle and Rosetown and on Highway 14 between Unity and the Alberta border.
