Winter Traffic Advisory

Extreme conditions including heavy snow, high winds, rain, and frigid temperatures have left many roads, including main highways across the province impassable. Plowing efforts have been further complicated by poor visibility and abandoned vehicles.

Plowing efforts today, Feb. 16, will focus on getting 100-series highways such as Highways 104 and 101, as well as main trunks and routes, opened and passable for traffic.

The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal is contacting private equipment operators for assistance and moving in heavy equipment and crews to some of the harder hit areas of the province.

It may be several days before local and gravel roads are plowed. The department is working with EMO and Nova Scotia Power to assist with emergencies and help restore power outages.

Motorists are advised to stay off the roads as much as possible and monitor twitter @NS_TIR and 511 for updates.
