Perimeter, portion of Highway 1 closed due to poor driving conditions

Manitobans are being reminded by RCMP to stay home tonight if possible due to poor driving conditions as two major highways are shut down.

Highway 1 from Winnipeg to Elie has been closed in both directions at approximately 7:30 p.m. due to poor driving conditions and icy roads.

Just before 10 p.m., the province announced the Perimeter Highway (100 & 101) was closed in both directions, also due to poor driving conditions.

Manitoba RCMP said in a Tweet on Twitter that visibility in open areas is “near zero due to high winds.”

If people do need to be driving, RCMP is reminding everyone to drive with caution.
