A section of Navan Road west of Mer Bleue Road is closed following a suspected water main break.

Ottawa police say a detour is in place.

Water could be seen coming up from the ground only a few meters away from a fire hydrant. The scene is near a pit dug in the area as part of a larger project.

It’s unclear when the road will fully reopen.

Navan Rd is closed in both directions at 3553 Navan Rd due to a possible infrastructure failure.
