Caution along Highway 1 and adjust to winter driving conditions.

Highway advisories issued across the Interior

Compact snow and black ice are causing issues on highways across the B.C. Interior

Winter is continuing to wreak havoc on interior roads in the province.

Following Sunday’s snowfall and the drop in temperature overnight across the Shuswap and Okanagan, DriveBC is issuing alerts across several highways.

A vehicle incident has reduced Highway 1 to single-alternating lanes 40 kilometres east of Golden.

Black ice and compact snow is being reported along Highway 1 from Sicamous to Craigellachie.

To the south, Highway 3 appears to be treacherous with slippery sections from Saturday Creek to south of Princeton, and from the junction of Highway 97 into Osoyoos.

Watch for compact snow along Highway 3A in Keremeos to the junction with Highway 97 in Kaleden.

If you’re traveling to the South Okanagan on Highway 97 the road is slippery in sections from Kelowna to Osoyoos.

For those choosing to travel along Highway 33, up to Big White, watch for compact snow and slippery sections. Highway 97C is reported to have good visibility, but slippery sections up to the Pennask Summit.

To the north, Highway 97 from Lake Country to Vernon also contains compact snow.

Be sure to check DriveBC before heading out onto the roads and adjust your driving to winter conditions.
