SOUTH PEACE REGION, B.C. – Freezing rain overnight has compromised the safety of travel on the roads in the North Peace Region, expanding south Peace Region now.

The advisory has been issued because of freezing rain in these certain specific areas.  With the roads being icy and incredibly slick the Fort St. John RCMP are asking residents to slow and leave adequate&nbsp down;space between vehicles while travelling.

Transit buses have began to run in FSJ while School buses&nbsp again;have been cancelled. Both educational school buses and the town buses have already been cancelled  today as a result of poor driving conditions in Dawson Creek.

Work crews are out salting and sanding roads to boost the driving condition. Folks are being asked never to travel until conditions progress. Road crews are requesting extra room while they’re working.

Please check Drive BC for current conditions.
