Storm Update: Police Advise Against Travel, Impact on City Services

OPP are advising drivers to stay off the roads if they can this afternoon. A dumping of 25-30cms of snow has fallen on the region making for tricky driving. To this point (4PM Friday), there are no major crashes on the 401 or 403 in our region. However, Oxford OPP Constable Stacey Culbert says on and off ramps have been problematic all day. "We're still looking at people getting stuck on the on and off ramps at various locations along the highways, so we want people taking extra caution." But with the snow still continuing, and the evening commute set to begin, there could be more problems ahead. Culbert has this advice for your evening commute, or if you have to go out tonight. "The three key elements of safe winter driving: stay alert, slow down, and stay in control. You have to drive according to the highway and weather conditions." In Woodstock, it may take until Saturday night for all of the city's streets to be cleared of the snow that has fallen. Crews have been busy today continuously clearing the main streets to keep city transit running. They've also started in on some of the side streets this afternoon, but City Engineer Harold DeHaan says there's still a lot of work ahead. "We're working on it, we're going to have crews out there pretty much non-stop into Saturday, until we've got everything cleaned up."
