Yellowhead Road and Bridge (YRB) Nicola is warning drivers of a weather system that will move in on Thursday, Feb. 6.

Snow accumulation will potentially cover the entire YRB service area before the weather system breaks up around midnight. The worst areas are expected to be the Coquihalla, which may see up to 20cm potentially mixed with rain, and the Connector (Hwy 97C) with snowfall of up to 15cm.

According to Andrew Stewart, Quality Manager for YRB, “Plow trucks will be out removing snow and restoring traction as well as putting out chemicals to help prevent icy conditions. When flashing lights are on, our trucks are in “Winter Work Mode” and require extra room to perform their necessary duties. Remember to never pass a plow truck on the right and road conditions in front of the plow truck will be worse than behind it.”
