OTTAWA, Ont. - The eastbound 174 between Montreal Road and Jeanne D'Arc Blvd. will likely be closed for days, as city crews work at fixing a massive sinkhole.

 

The huge pit on the off-ramp at Jeanne D'Arc swallowed a car Tuesday afternoon, the vehicle coming to rest on a corroded sewer line.

 

Orleans councillor Bob Monette told 1310News crews first need to figure out how to get the car out of the hole. Then city officials need to find the right sized pipe to replace the damaged sewer line.

 

"If they can get the 3.6 metre pipe, then it will be a matter of days before it's replaced and the road reopened," Monette said, adding that as a driver who uses the 174 on a daily basis, he understands the frustration of Orleans residents. "That's the highest traveled roadway in our community. Everyone travels the 174 to get to and from Orleans."

 

This section of pipeline was inspected and cleared in 2011, and Monette told 1310News he's looking into what caused the pipe to burst now.

 

In the meantime, he recommended that Orleans residents take the bus or try carpooling on alternate routes like Innes Road or St Joseph Blvd.
