Edmonton police warned drivers to avoid travelling on the southwest section of Anthony Henday Drive after several collisions caused by treacherous road conditions Sunday morning.

Deteriorating road conditions caused a multi-vehicle collision near 111th Street and the Henday.

There have also been several other crashes on the road between 111th Street and the Highway 16 turnoff.

Traffic was also moving slow on Highway 2 south of Edmonton today after several collisions, said 511 Alberta.

There were problems in both northbound and southbound lanes near Blackfalds and in the southbound lanes near Ponoka. 

In Lac La Biche, RCMP warned drivers about dangerous driving conditions in that part of the province.

They issued a no travel advisory on Highways 881 and 663, saying that icy roads and snow were reducing visibility in some areas.

Police said conditions were so bad that even patrol cars along Highway 881 were having trouble safely stopping.
