Meanwhile, the highway is closed south of Function Junction due to vehicle incident, and there are reports of accidents on the highway at Britannia Beach and Porteau Cove.
A special weather statement is in effect with periods of heavy snow continuing into Sunday morning. Snow accumulations up to 30 cm are possible over very short durations. On provincial highways across the south coast, maintenance contractors are proactively applying anti-icing brine, and will plow and sand to manage snow accumulations, says the province.
