Commuters should do their best to avoid travelling the northern portion of the West Perimeter Highway as well as the western portion of the South Perimeter Highway.

Both directions of the Perimeter Highway have now been closed from Highway 6 to CentrePort Canada Way due to a serious collision. Long lineups have begun on the highway in both directions.

Commuters are reporting slippery sections of highway along the West Perimeter, as well as the Trans-Canada Highway west of Winnipeg. Several vehicles have been spotted in the ditches along both highways.

A driver on social media commented that they have been stuck in the lineup for over an hour now.

It's not clear at this time how many vehicles are involved in the collision or of injuries.
