The mountain crossings across Dovrefjell, Hardangervidda and Vikafjellet are closed due to the bad  weather.
It’s the stretches Dombås-Gronbakken on highway E6 over Dovrefjell, Leiro-Haugastol on highway 7 over Hardangervidda and Hola Storehaug tunnel on Highway 13 over Vikafjellet that have been closed, according to the NPRA.
The Road Administration will consider whether highway 13 may be opened again at 9 o’clock Saturday morning.
People driving on Highway 9 between Hovden and Haukeli  have to drive in convoy. Earlier in the day this was also the case on highway E134 over Haukelifjell, but at 8.30 pm, the road was reopened. At the roads between Brunkeberg and Haukeli snow and ice  have covered on the road and a risk of slippery sections.
 The Highway E16 over Filefjell is open but  it is coverd by snow and ice  and there is also reduced visibility in some places along that road.
