Edmonton Police deal with slick roads and 125 collisions as of 4 p.m.

Southbound highway lanes were slow going on Friday due to a collision with a semi tractor.

A collision earlier in the morning near Millet and Leduc at Secondary Highway 616 caused serious traffic delays. According to 511 Alberta’s Twitter account, there were major delays for several hours, plus at 2 p.m. while crews tried to clean up the scene.
