The newly-discovered RCMP shut down Motorway 101 in Berwick this morning due to a "deployable situation."
They have not issued details of the incident that is happening except to say that the public is not at risk.
The police said the highway 101 between exits 15 and 16 is expected to be closed for most of the day.
Traffic is redirected to Highway 1.
Somerset and Berwick County Elementary School were closed today.
The Annapolis Valley Regional Education Center did not provide a reason for the cancellation.
