Bottom Brook Bridge off Lewisporte Highway closed to heavy vehicle traffic
The Department of Fisheries and Land Resources is advising Bottom Brook Bridge is closed to all heavy vehicle traffic effective immediately.
Environment Canada is warning of “another intense winter storm” that will hit Monday night.
As of Sunday evening, the system was expected to track southeast of the Avalon Peninsula Monday night, bringing snow, which will taper off into flurries overnight.
The bulk of the heavy snow should stay offshore, but the majority of the Avalon is expected to get between five and 15 cm.
“Since this system is still in its early stages of development, it should be noted that there is still a chance that the heavy snow could push onshore Monday evening which would result in much higher snowfall amounts,” reads a special weather statement from Environment Canada.
This forecast may change as it rapidly approaches the island. Residents can check weather.gc.ca for updated information.
