Highway 1 is down to single lane traffic east of Golden in each direction due to a vehicle incident, according to DriveBC.

Crews are currently on scene, and an assessment is in process.

Major delays are expected.

Winter driving conditions are expected and are impacting the road, as significant snowfall is expected to continue over the next few days, with Environment Canada issuing a winter storm warning for the area.

Those travelling on Highway 1 between Eagle Pass and Rogers pass should expect snowfall of up to 40 cm on the roads for that period.

Adjust to winter driving behaviour and use winter tires and chains.

According to Environment Canada, accumulating snow will make travel difficult, with reduced visibility due to heavy snowfall. Those walking or driving in affected areas should take extra precautions.

Environment Canada says weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
