Crews were cutting through Mary Street to fix a water line break, Thursday morning.

The line burst and shot water across the road Wednesday afternoon, said Barrie works department staff Steve Ball.

“The water main started spraying up yesterday,” said Ball.

Because home and business owners are responsible for water lines to the city’s water main under the road, Eisses Excavating crews were performing the work on behalf of the business owners, he said.

City crews were on hand to ensure the city lines were properly maintained.

The road is expected to remain closed all day Thursday.
