A planned detonation scheduled for yesterday that was to shut down Magazine Hill for about two hours is taking place this morning instead.

Yesterday’s wet weather was the reason for the one-day delay.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal personnel will detonate the shells at the nearby Canadian Forces Ammunition Depot between 10 a.m. and noon today.

The highway will be closed in both directions from Akerley Boulevard and Windmill Road to where Dartmouth Road and the Bedford bypass meet the highway.
