Lane reductions through downtown Owen Sound may cause some delays
Enbridge Gas has to make an emergency repair today in dowtown Owen Sound in front of the Coach Inn (Jason's Pub) just east of the 10th Street bridge which is still under construction.
Starting at 7 this morning lanes were reduced on 10th Street East and 2nd Ave East to allow just one lane of traffic in each direction.
Parking will also be blocked in that area with limited sidewalk access as well.
The estimated time of completion is 7pm.
The reduction in traffic flow may cause some delays through the downtown particularily over the lunch hour.
Traffic was gridlocked through downtown Owen Sound on Wednesday afternoon because of ongoing work being done on 9th Street West.
