The department warned of an incident on Highway 3 between Fort Providence and Behchokǫ̀, and another on Highway 6 leading to Fort Resolution.
“There was a separate incident earlier on Highway 3 near Chan Lake,” the department confirmed by email late on Wednesday. “The highway is still partially obstructed. Travellers can expect delays and should slow down and obey emergency workers.”
In all cases, the highways remained opened to traffic.
Snow was the cause of issues across the territory, with the Inuvik-Tuk Highway closing entirely to traffic on Wednesday due to high winds and blowing snow.
In Aklavik, snow and wind coupled with low visibility closed the ice road.
