The Innisfail RCMP Traffic Services Unit is adding their voices to those calling for motorists to exercise extreme caution when travelling on the QE II Highway in the area.

The RCMP is advising drivers of deteriorating road conditions caused by snow and wind on the QE II from Bowden to Highway 582. 

Police are recommending against travel and are asking motorists to take extra precautions when driving in the area.

Earlier, Didsbury RCMP also issued a warning to drivers of poor road conditions when passing other vehicles on the QE II near Carstairs.  

At around 9:30 am, they said conditions were especially poor in the area around the Carstairs overpass, where a jackknifed travel trailer was blocking one of the northbound lanes. 

Traffic in the area was said to be moving very slowly.
