Broken water main closes De Lorimier and Rachel

Drivers coming off the Jacques Cartier Bridge ran into delays Monday morning as water from a burst pipe gushed into the street.

Police closed De Lorimier Ave. between Sherbrooke St. and Rachel St. around 6 a.m., while Rachel was closed between De Bordeaux St. and Des Erables Ave.

Municipal crews are expected to spend the day locating and repairing the broken pipe.

The city of Montreal spends about $10 million each year to fix water mains that break, and city officials blame the frequent failures on an underinvestment in maintenance during the 1980s and ’90s.
