RCMP QEII Traffic Services are warning drivers to stay off Highway 2 between Didsbury and Penhold due to treacherous road conditions.
Officers and emergency services personnel remain on the scene at two separate jack-knifed semi-trucks the highway. One is in the Antler Hill area near Innisfail, and the other is near the Bowden Fas Gas Station.
Single lane traffic southbound is occurring in these areas.
Police said road conditions include zero visibility, high winds, icy and slippery roads.
Motorists are also coming upon emergency crews very quickly and police request that drivers slow down for everyone’s safety. Visibility is poor and emergency crews are at several locations along that area of the highway assisting motorists.
Motorists are asked to avoid travelling on the QEII in this area.
