Snow accumulating on the Malahat

Emcon Services urging drivers to use caution

First it was rain, now it’s snow.

Snow is starting to accumulate at higher elevations around the Malahat section of the Trans-Canada Highway.

Highway contractor Emcon Services Inc. tweeted a picture of a dusting of snow, urging motorists to drive to conditions and use caution when driving through work zones.

Winter tire regulations came into effect on Oct. 1 and remain in effect until April 30 for mountain passes and some rural highways – including the Malahat and Highway 14.

Drivers travelling on these routes are required to use qualified tires. There are three types of tires that meet the regulations – all-season, all-weather and winter. They must also have the mountain/snowflake logo or an M+S symbol with a minimum tread depth of 3.5 millimetres.
