A semi-truck has slipped off the road and taken out a power pole. 

The semi, which was hauling lumber on a flatbed, was going up the on-ramp at 11th Avenue Northwest. The road is closed while the trailer and semi are blocking the on-ramp to the Trans-Canada Highway. 

RCMP is on the scene with other EMS to remedy the situation. 

City crews are on the scene working to repair the pole. 

Drivers will want to use extreme caution today, as the roads are both icy and slick with slush from last night's snowfall. 

Check the Highway Hotline before travelling, and listen to local authorities and sources advising on interior city conditions.
