Winter is here, and Drive BC is issuing warnings to motorists to drive accordingly.

Drive BC is warning residents of compact snow with slippery sections on all sections of Highway 3 between Rock Creek and Christina Lake. While there are travel advisories in effect for many sections of Highway 3, Drive BC has not yet issued a travel advisory for the Boundary.

Drive BC is also advising that a vehicle recovery operation will be taking place between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. near the Blueberry/Paulson Summit. Traffic is reduced to single lane alternating while the recovery is taking place.
