month, Orléans commuters have to take a detour
in order to avoid a watermain break.
crews had to close the eastbound lanes on Innes Road between
the Blackburn Bypass and Orleans Blvd. early this morning
in order to fix a watermain break that created a three
foot high geyser about 18 inches in diameter.
is the second watermain break along that stretch of Innes
Road in the past week and follows closely on the heels
of similar watermain breaks along St. Joseph Blvd., the
largest of which created a larg sinkhole las week.
watermain breaks occurred at St. Joseph and St. Jean and
on Gaultois Avenue.
staff aren't sure what is causing the rash of watermain
breaks or whether they're related. They are investigating
the matter, however, and hope to have an answer for local
story was made possible thanks to their generous support
