Ice, snow melting wreak havoc on Pictou County roads
STELLARTON - Bridge Avenue off Hwy 348 Stellarton towards New Glasgow has now reopened, according to Department of Transportation. It had been closed due to flooding.
While the mild weather is a repose from the chill of last week, it also means that snow and ice has to go somewhere.
Rivers, streams and lakes are feeling the flow too. Park Falls was a frothy brown deluge when compared to the flow two months ago (see video).
The following roads remain closed in the county due to flooding:
- Back Road is closed near the Brookland Road between civic number 545 and 555 because of flooding and bridge damage, and is also closed at the eastern end near Stillman Road. Civic numbers 555 and 600 are accessible from the Plant Road while civic 525 and 545 are accessible from the Brookland Road.â€¨
- Porter Road is closed at the northern end near/at the Elmfield Road because of bridge damage.
