Bathurst Police Force advises motorists to stay off roads

The Bathurst Police Department says most main roads in the city have been cleared but remain extremely slippery.

Harbourview Boulevard remains closed for the time being, however is expected to open later in the day.

The department says St. Peter Ave, from 'Village Hill' to Veteran's Bridge is in treacherous condition and motorists are being advised to use an alternate route for the time being.

Unless there is an urgent need, the force is advising motorists to stay off the roads for reasons of safety and to allow snow removal crews to continue their task of clearing city streets.
