Roads are slick in and around the heartland. 

Extremely icy conditions and snow-covered lanes are creating poor driving conditions on Highway 16 near Elk Island National Park, says the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP. 

“RCMP, Fire and EMS have responded to numerous complaints of vehicles in the ditch,” said Mounties in a statement. 

If you must travel, reduce your speed and allow extra time to reach your destination. Police recommend keeping adequate fuel, an emergency kit, and additional winter clothing. 

511 Alberta currently rates conditions on most local highways as partly covered in snow or ice.
