Description of Road Conditions and Visibility
|Road is bare||Road is snow covered|
| Road surfaces can be dry or wet, but are clear
of snow or ice.
|Road surfaces are completely snow covered with no bare sections from one end to the other.|
|Road is icy||Road is partially snow covered|
| Road surfaces are ice covered or snow packed
due to either sleet or wet snow causing road
surfaces to be slippery.
|Road surfaces have snow-covered or snow-packed sections. For example, there may be drifted sections of snow covering lanes or the road centre is bare.|
|Road is snow packed||Road is closed|
| Road surfaces are completely snow packed
with no bare sections from one end to the other.
|Road is closed because road surfaces are impossible to travel along due to either continuous snow fall preventing snow removal or lane closures due to a collision.|
|Visibility is good||Visibility is nil|
|Visibility is good when you can see up to the horizon.||Visibility is nil when your range of vision is less than 50 metres.|
|Visibility is fair to poor|
|Visibility is fair to poor when your range of vision is reduced to 500 metres or less.|
