Traffic Advisory, Lunenburg County


The LaHave cable ferry may be out of service for one to three more weeks for damage assessment and repair of the drum and cable anchor system. Ferry users should prepare to take an alternate route around the LaHave River.

The ferry was taken out of service when the cable unwound from the drum due to pressure from excessive ice in the river.

Engineers are assessing the extent of the damage and the necessary repairs. Recognizing the inconvenience to people the department is working hard to get the ferry up and running as quickly as possible.
