Highway #1 is open in both directions so far this morning, with winter conditions reported by the Highway Hotline. 

Yesterday, 10.5 km West of Mortlach was blocked by several collided semis, with a swath of highway between Mortlach and Rush Lake being closed much of the morning and into the afternoon due to icy conditions.  

RCMP say five semis were involved in collisions. The first collision involved three semis, with two separate semis colliding nearby later. One non-life-threatening injury was reported from the second incident, and saw the driver taken to hospital. No other injuries were reported. 

A local farmer was out with their tractor, helping to drag the semis out of the ditch.
