Flood recovery efforts continue in the province nearly one month later, with a lot of work left to do.

The city says around 1350 roadways still need work, impacting over 400 roads and two bridges.

The majority are in Bedford, Sackville, Hammonds Plains and Fall River.

The city says given the number or repairs that need to be done, it’s going to take time.

The municipality is responsible for over 4,000 kilometres of roads, 100 bridges and 1,200 sidewalks/multi-use paths. The Province of Nova Scotia is responsible for maintaining most rural roads and highways.

July 21 and 22 HRM had three months’ worth of rain fall within a 24-hour period.
