AIRDRIE (660 NEWS) — RCMP in Airdrie are advising people to avoid stretches of the QEII highway to the north of Calgary.

Due to black ice and blowing snow between Airdrie and Didsbury, the road conditions are extremely poor, and they are telling people to avoid unnecessary travel.

Emergency crews have been responding to multiple collisions throughout the day.

They are also asking people on the road to slow down, especially around emergency crews working on the scene.

You can also check 511 Alberta for more details on the conditions if you absolutely have to head out on the roads.
