Nova Scotia RCMP say Highway 102 southbound lanes heading to Halifax are shut down between Exit 10 at Shubenacadie and Exit 11 at Stewiacke.

The cause is a department of transportation snow plow, which hit a temporary bridge erected as part of construction work in the area.

Traffic is being detoured onto Highway 2.
