Watch Your Step!
Prince George, B.C. -Motorists and pedestrians would be best advised to stay indoors today.
While freezing rain has made travel dangerous on area highways (see story here) the roads and sidewalks within the city are also very icy.
The above photo was taken at 3rd Avenue and Edmonton Street this morning while the photo below shows some roads are literally a sheet of ice.
The Prince George RCMP says there have been multiple minor collisions throughout the city.
They say one of the worst areas this morning has been Northwood Pulpmill Road where many vehicles have crashed or are stuck due to the road conditions.
Seven of the 8 sanding trucks operated by the City are on the road spreading sand to ease the situation. The 8th truck is not available as it is in the shop for repairs.
