A bridge in Shelburne County is closed due to high water levels.

It’s the Bloody Creek Bridge on Upper Clyde Road.

Barrington and Clark’s Harbour’s emergency management organization asked people who live above the bridge to move their vehicles to the Barrington side.

They say they’ll be keeping an eye on water levels and re-assess as water recedes.

Frotten Road Bridge update:

A bridge in Yarmouth County is still closed due to high water levels.

The Frotten Road Bridge in Quinan shut down on Friday, a walking bridge has been installed.

Shane Strong with Yarmouth’s regional emergency management office says levels haven’t gone up since then.

“There are barriers up so cars can’t go through. The bridge will have to be inspected when the water goes down before we can re-open it,” said Strong.

He says the water levels will have to recede by at least eight inches.

Strong says water levels are high across the region, and we’re experiencing very high tides on Monday.
