Just before 5 p.m. on Friday, there were reports that the Southbound lanes of the QEII, which had previously been closed for the better part of Friday due to a multi-vehicle collision East of Olds, had re-opened.
Before noon on Friday, RCMP said that traffic has begun slowly moving in the Northbound lanes of the QEII, between Olds and Didsbury, after a multitude of multi-vehicle collisions had occurred.
Earlier in the morning, Mounties informed the public that motorists who had been involved in numerous motor vehicle collisions on the QEII will have a very difficult time finding a tow truck.
"There is now a towing advisory. Tow trucks cannot come to the area so please do not call them," Mounties stated.
Alberta RCMP is also imploring the public to delay their travel on Friday as the QEII North of Airdrie towards Red Deer is in extremely poor driving conditions. Mounties said they are currently responding to a multitude of multi-vehicle collisions between Olds and Didsbury.
The multi-vehicle collision that had also been reported on the QEII, Northbound near Township Road 320, three kilometres north of Didsbury has since been cleared.
Previously there were reports of a jack-knifed semi-trailer in the median on the QEII, Northbound near Highway 27, East of Olds.
