The Regional Municipality of Durham, Works Department would like to advise residents and businesses that a watermain break has closed Centre Street South, from King Street to Athol Street in downtown Oshawa. In addition, the watermain break will shut down the municipal water supply for residents and businesses in this area.

WHEN:

Repair work is ongoing and will be completed as soon as possible.

WHERE:

Centre Street South, from King Street to Athol Street in downtown Oshawa.

WHY:

To repair the watermain and road restoration.

NOTE:

The Region is making every effort to complete the work as quickly and efficiently as possible. Drivers are asked to exercise caution for the safety of pedestrians and work crews.
