Water main break on Speedvale Avenue East being repaired today

Road closed between Delhi Steet and Metcalfe Street

Update, June 30, 2018: the water main has been repaired and the road has reopened.

Guelph, Ont., June 29, 2018—A water main break occurred at 243 Speedvale Avenue east between Metcalfe and Delhi around 3 p.m. today.

Crews are on site repairing the break now and expect to be done later tonight or early in the morning, as long as there are no added complications.

The City has notified local residents about the break. Significant water  has surfaced in the roadway causing asphalt heaving and road flooding. People living and working in the area may notice disruptions in water service and changes in water pressure.

Traffic and transit impacts

Speedvale Avenue East is closed to all traffic between Dehli Street and Metcalfe Street until the water main is repaired. Traffic is expected to be a challenge as Eramosa Road is also shut down between Metcalfe Street and Delhi Street.

Drivers and transit users in the area should expect delays and plan extra time for travel.

The City will provide updates at guelph.ca and on Facebook (facebook.com/cityofguelph) and Twitter (twitter.com/cityofguelph) should anything change, or once repairs are complete.
