ONSLOW - Blues musicians weren't the only ones jamming in the Truro area Friday afternoon.
Around 2:30 p.m. traffic on Highway 104 was backed up for more than two hours near Exit 15 in a jam spanning more than two kilometres.
An RCMP official said traffic congestion was caused by an exceptionally large volume of vehicles attempting to turn off the Trans Canada Highway onto Highway 102, leading to Truro and Halifax.
Police believe there was an influx of traffic in the area during that time because people were returning to the province following the AC/DC concert held in Moncton, overnight, as well as people heading to the Dutch Mason Blues Festival that opened in Bible Hill last night.

Organizations: RCMP, AC/DC

Geographic location: Truro, Halifax, Moncton Bible Hill
