Southbound lanes near Hants East are closed on Highway 102 while a tracker trailer is pulled from a ditch.
Colchester County RCMP's Cpl. Addie MacCallum told the Truro Daily News a tracker trailer slid off the highway near Hants East earlier in the day. There were no injuries and the vehicle landed upright in the ditch, however, it will take about an hour of rerouting south-bound traffic between Exits 11 and 9 to Highway 2 into Shubenacadie while the truck is being extracted from the ditch. That was expected to begin at about 2 p.m.
In addition, MacCallum said, there were at least three other vehicles off the highway in that area late morning, all within an hour and a half of each other. There were no accidents reported.
