A water main break early Tuesday morning has prompted police to block several streets to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic near Uptown mall.
The water pipe burst at about 6 a.m. on December 4th at the intersection of Carey Rd and Cadillac Ave, causing water to spill onto the streets and make its way onto the Trans Canada Highway.
