Repairs have been completed on a broken water main that forced the shutdown of a busy stretch of Barry Downe Road yesterday afternoon.

Several blocks of Barry Downe running from Hawthorne Drive all the way to the New Sudbury Shopping Centre were  barricaded by police after a large heave and sink hole appeared in the road surface. 

Water could be seen flowing out of the crack in the pavement and residents reported low pressure and discoloured water in the area. 

According to City of Greater Sudbury spokesperson Shannon Dowling, public works crews completed the repairs early this afternoon and are now repaving the site of the break.

Lane reductions will continue until paving is complete.

Residents and businesses in the area my still experience discoloured water. If that occurs, the City advises that the tap closest to the water intake be run until the water runs clear.

If it continues, residents are asked to call 3-1-1.
