Cabot Trail status

It’ll be a few weeks before a washed out road off the Cabot Trail can reopen.

The Transporation Department says the heavy rains caused flooding and a washout on Middle River West Road  and new culverts will have to be installed.  80 year round homes, 40 cottages and three businesses are affected.

Also, a section of shoulder on the Cabot Trail itself washed away Monday 20km northwest of Baddeck, but one has been reopened.
