Service restored after gas line severed on Montrose Street North in Cambridge

By CityNews Kitchener Staff

The public was asked to avoid the Montrose Street North area of Cambridge on Tuesday afternoon after a gas utility line was severed.

The City of Cambridge said emergency protocols were initiated over the noon hour as officials from the fire department and Enbridge Gas responded to the scene.

Drivers and pedestrians were told to avoid the area until further notice.

A spokesperson with Enbridge Gas later confirmed a four-inch steel natural gas main had been damaged.

While an investigation was ongoing, the utility provider believed the damage was caused by third-party construction.

Repairs were mostly completed Tuesday night.

Communications Advisor Lesley Hunter tells CityNews 570, “There are a few businesses that had closed by the time that the repairs had been completed and our crews will work to restore their service this (Wednesday) morning.”

Enbridge Gas initially said a dozen commercial and small industrial customers in the area would experience a natural gas service disruption until Wednesday.

The number then rose to 52, including some residential customers.
