Water levels are going down in Yarmouth County.

But two bridges remain closed, the Duck Lake bridge on Belleville Road and the Frotten Road Bridge in Quinan.

Shane Strong with Yarmouth’s regional emergency management office says the water is down two inches in Quinan.

“The Tusket River system has gone down three inches, and the Belleville bridge area has gone down two inches. It looks like the water is receding and going where it’s suppose to,” said Strong.

Public works will re-open the bridges when it’s safe to do so, and after an inspection.

The bridge in Belleville was shut down Wednesday, while this Friday will mark a week since the closure of the Frotten Road bridge.

Strong says public works has been fixing up the John Murray Road for residents north of the Belleville bridge to access.

A walking-bridge is in place in Quinan.
