Alberta highways face closures after massive snowfall

Multiple highways across the province are facing closures due to accidents and poor driving conditions.

Highway 1A from highway 1X to highway 133S, near Morley, is closed due to a multi-vehicle crash. The route was previously closed because of multiple spun-out vehicles which were blocking lanes. It was only reopened for a couple of hours Wednesday morning.

The 60-kilometre stretch of the QEII highway has reopened after a serious crash prompted it to close Tuesday night. RCMP says a fatal collision occurred between Township Road 292 and Highway 581. Vehicles trying to travel the route to Edmonton were detoured to Highway 2A.

Highway 1 near Canmore was also closed for awhile. People stuck in traffic were posting pictures to twitter and saying they had been stranded for 15-hours.
