Section of Highway 102 closed tonight for bridge repairs

The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (TIR) says the Truro-bound lanes of Highway 102 will be closed between Enfield (Exit 7) and Elmsdale (Exit 8) tonight.

In a series of tweets this morning, the province says both lanes will be closed from 7:30 p.m. Friday until 10:30 a.m. Saturday for bridge repair.

TIR says the detour to return to the highway is right onto Trunk 2, left onto Route 214, and then right onto the on-ramp for the highway at Exit 8.

The province says travelers can check with either the 511 Nova Scotia website or follow @511ns on Twitter for updates on the closure.
