Water main break forces closure of eastbound Franklin St.

North Bay, ON – July 21, 2016 – Eastbound lanes on Franklin Street are closed to traffic at Ellis Street due to a water main break. Eastbound traffic will be redirected down Ellis St. to Regina St.  The westbound lanes along Franklin St. will be reduced to one lane and controlled by flag men.

The closure is expected to last for the majority of the day so necessary repairs can be completed and the road reopened.
