Sudbury Daystarter Roads

OPEN: Provincial police say the southbound lanes of highway 400 just north of Parry Sound are back open after a transport rollover earlier this morning. The Ministry of Transportation reports poor visibility on roads in the Parry Sound area and Highway 11 around Burk's Falls. Meanwhile, Toronto media outlets are reporting as many as 60 cars are involved in a pileup south of Barrie that has closed highway 400 at Innisfil.

Sudbury streets are also snow packed. Some intersections are icy.

Most highways have at least partial snow cover. Visibility is fair to poor on Highway 69 near Point au Baril, and on Highway 11 near Burk's Falls.
