The freeze-thaw cycle is wreaking havoc on Greater Victoria roads after a dump of snow hit the region this week.
Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are being warned of black ice on sidewalks and roadways after Thursday’s melt froze into ice overnight.
Drive BC warns of black ice on Highway 14 between Metchosin and Langford and on the Pat Bay Highway between Tolmie Avenue and the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal. The road services also warns of black ice on Highway 17A between Royal Oak Drive and the Pat Bay Highway.
Local police forces are also warning the public to be cautious.
Temperatures have dipped since yesterday. The snow may be clear but road users should be cautious of frozen snow melt and black ice. Give yourself extra time, especially if you need to clear your vehicle of frost. #yyjtraffic pic.twitter.com/u4anwbowPW
