About 50 people blocked vehicles from entering or leaving Fleur de Lys on Thursday morning.

Councillor Joy Walsh said protesters are fed up with the poor condition of the road in the town on the Baie Verte Peninsula​.

She said it's full of pot holes, and vehicles are often forced to drive on the shoulder.

Walsh said she fears it will eventually cause an accident.

"Somebody is going to be hurt on our road, and it's sad because our school bus has to travel over this road twice a day with very young children, and I don't know if they're going to wait for something to happen," she said.

"The kids shouldn't have to travel over this. It's ridiculous."

Walsh said the RCMP made the protesters move to allow traffic to get through, though no one was arrested on the scene.
