RCMP are warning motorists to travel with caution on the QEII Highway north of Calgary due to slippery driving conditions.

The slick roads contributed to a crash on Highway 2 near Carstairs, Alta., on Monday, that stopped traffic for about an hour.

The collision happened south of the Carstairs overpass at around 9:30 a.m. and was cleared by 10:30 a.m.

"The area is very slippery so please travel with caution," RCMP said in a news release.

On its website, 511 Alberta lists Highway 2 as being partly covered in snow and ice between Calgary and Township Road 292, north of Crossfield.

The town of Crossfield is located approximately 30 kilometres north of Calgary.
