A crash in the North Transcona area led to delays this morning after a traffic light was taken down.

Visibility was poor throughout Winnipeg Monday morning, including at the corner of Lagimodiere Boulevard and Chief Peguis Trail, where the single-vehicle collision occurred just before 5:50 a.m.

No one was injured in the crash, police said.

A fog advisory was issued Sunday night at 8 p.m. It was lifted at 4:30 a.m. Monday, but the dense fog persisted into the early morning.
City crews repair a traffic light that was knocked down in a crash in the area of Lagimodere Boulevard and Chief Peguis Trail Monday.

While Winnipeg is forecast to reach 15 C today, roads were icy in the morning. The province says the Perimeter Highway is covered in ice from the Highway 7 intersection east and south to the Highway 15 intersection. Roads in West and East St. Paul are also covered in ice.

The ice is slightly less of a problem along the western edges of the city. The Perimeter is partly icy from the Highway 3 intersection in the southwest all the way up to the Highway 7 intersection in the northwest reaches of the city, the provincial road report says. Dugald Road and a stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway east of the city were also partly icy in the morning, the province reports.

The cause of the crash hasn't been released.
