Work on Hwy 102 cre­ates back­ups

Truro Daily News - - FRONT PAGE - BY CODY MCEACH­ERN

Colch­ester County com­muters can ex­pect de­lays both in the morn­ing and af­ter­noon as crews start road re­pairs along High­way 102.

Crews limited Hwy 102 to one lane for both north­bound and south­bound traf­fic be­tween ex­its 11 (Stewiacke) and 12 (Brook­field) Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

Out­side lanes are closed off go­ing both di­rec­tions, and speeds are re­duced from 110 km/h to 80 km/h.

With an es­ti­mated 30,000 ve­hi­cles us­ing the high­way per day, trav­ellers should ex­pect backed up traf­fic and de­lays, es­pe­cially at high traf­fic hours such as in the morn­ing and late af­ter­noon.

The road­work is sched­uled to wrap up Fri­day, but trav­ellers of Hwy 102 may want to plan ahead and pick an al­ter­nate route for the time be­ing.

At the mo­ment, there are no an­nounced plans to work on the in­side lanes in the near fu­ture.
