Eastbound lanes closed on Innes Road after second watermain break in a week

For the second time in less than a week and fifth time this month, Orléans commuters have to take a detour in order to avoid a watermain break.

City 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.

It 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.

Other watermain breaks occurred at St. Joseph and St. Jean and on Gaultois Avenue.

City 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 councillors soon.
