Prince George, B.C. – Those planning a road trip along Highway 16 East may want to reconsider their plans.

Drive BC has issued a travel advisory due to freezing rain from Crescent Spur to McBride.hwy advisory

Travel along the 50 kilometre stretch is not recommended unless absolutely necessary.

Indications are the treacherous road conditions will persist for at least a few more days.

Rain and a high of four degrees is expected tomorrow.


Now this is the way an article should read, just the facts allowing people to make an informed decision whether or not to travel. No reminders to slow down, clear your windows, pack an extra pair of socks, make sure your gas tank is full, bring a toque and gloves, top up washer fluid…..
