A stretch of a major Mississauga road is entirely closed down as emergency crews work to repair a water main break.
Drivers planning to cruise down Erin Mills Parkway on Monday will have to find an alternate route as repairs are ongoing along the roadway between Dundas Street West and Fowler Drive.
According to Peel Public Works, the repairs may last until Thursday, estimating as of 2 pm on Monday that they could take another 48 to 72 hours.
