PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, Man. — Icy roads and white-out conditions caused police to shut down the Trans-Canada Highway (TCH) through Manitoba yesterday, causing many truckers to seek shelter.

Hwy. 1 was closed for the fourth time this winter, both to the east and west of Portage la Prairie, Man., and area truck stops quickly filled up.

“There is about a three-kilometre stretch of semi trailers lined up behind the junction of Hwy.s 1 and 16 waiting for the highway to open up,” Corp. Marty Grainger of the Portage la Prairie RCMP told local media last night.

The RCMP is still advising drivers to use caution, as more snow is expected.
