A combination of freezing rain and snow is creating slippery conditions across Saskatchewan Thursday morning.
The provincial highway hotline has travel not recommended warnings across the province including on Highway 11 between Saskatoon and Davidson and Highway 5 to Highway 2.
Highway 7 is also reported to be treacherous with travel not recommended from Delisle all the way to the Alberta border. Kindersley RCMP reported 20 crashes along Highway 7 Wednesday afternoon and the freezing rain began to soak the highway.
Reports of black ice on parts of Highway 1 in southern Saskatchewan are causing drivers to tighten the grip on their steering wheels. Pat McDonald found the roads to be less than favourable around Moosomin.
“(Highway) 1 was black ice and it was very slippery, and (Highway) 8 heading north was lightly snow-covered but very slippery as well,” he said.
Swift Current RCMP sent out a warning to drivers not to take Highway 1 and other highways in the area because of slippery portions. Highway 6 north of Regina to Southey is also causing drivers some headaches with close to zero visibility and ice covering the roads.
