Plateau water main break still causing traffic chaos

The Plateau borough is still dealing with traffic delays after a water main broke on Saturday, creating a thick crust of ice over both cars and roads.

St-Joseph Boulevard remains closed in both directions this morning between St-Denis Street and Resther Street.

The break occurred at the corner of St-Joseph Boulevard and Berri Street, and flooded several streets with water.

Dozens of cars were stuck and had to be chipped out of the ice.

Work is expected to take at least a week.
