Yarmouth Road Concerns

Jessica Cromwell was metres from her Weymouth Falls driveway with two of her children when the wheels of her minivan slid into a deep rut.

With tires sunk in mud up to the bottom of her door, they had to abandon their vehicle.

Her boyfriend eventually towed it free.

Cromwell says the Yarmouth Road has been in “absolutely horrible” shape since the weather warmed up and the ground started to thaw.

A Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal spokesperson said the spring is a difficult time of year for many gravel roads, especially when the weather swings from cold and snowy to warm and rainy.
