FRIDAY: Blowing snow and drifts are creating reduced visibility and dangerous driving conditions on Prince Edward County roads today. Reports are also coming in on extreme poor conditions on Hwy 401 from Kingston to Belleville and near whiteout conditions from Trenton to Cobourg as well.

Due to blowing snow and stuck vehicles, Hiscock Shores Road has been closed to all traffic until further notice. The road may remain closed until Saturday morning.

Plows are out in force to cover the County’s more than 1,100 km of roads. Using a patrol system, the County reviews all roads and calls in equipment as necessary to deal with snow fall, drifting snow, ice, etc. Main roads are completed first to ensure access by emergency vehicles.

The County shares this photo on Twitter of the clean up ongoing at Hiscock Shores.

The County shared this photo earlier this month when Hiscock Shores Road had to be closed.

    does anyone have info on when the white out conditions on the 401 will subside??

    April would be my guess, but the way this year is going, possibly May. 🙂
