Snowy weather makes for messy morning commute

LOWER MAINLAND (NEWS1130) – With snow falling around the Lower Mainland this morning, we sent News1130’s Jesse Johnston out to check on the roads.

He spotted quite a few problems as he made his way over the Port Mann Bridge into Surrey.

“The roads are really bad,” he reported.” They’ve already been coated in snow; it’s raining on top of that. With the temperature hovering around zero, that’s making the roads really slick.”

“My tires have been spinning all morning, and I’ve passed a lot of cars spun out and stuck in the median, especially around the 152nd Street stretch,” he added.

Citytv’s Greg Harper visited the Vancouver-Burnaby border this morning. “There are many vehicles that are struggling… we saw a taxi actually going in reverse. [People have] their hazards on. This is very treacherous here in South Burnaby. Going up Boundary Road, it is slick.”
