RCMP are advising motorists Friday morning to slow down and take it easy on highways, especially on the perimeter and the new CentrePort Canada Way, or Highway 221.
Police say there is black ice on the road and it is very slippery.
As many as six vehicles are in the ditch this morning on highway 221 and Sturgeon Road.
Only minor injuries have been reported so far.
CBC Traffic Reporter Trevor Dineen says a number of cars, trucks and semis have also been spotted in the ditch on the perimeter.
Traffic is also down to 40 kilometres an hour in the area.
Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation has issued an advisory on the Perimeter around Winnipeg describing it as ice-covered and slippery.
