Roadways have been reopened to traffic after a chlorine leak near Waverley Street and Hurst Way.

Police tweeted about the hazardous materials call shortly after 12:30 p.m. Monday.

Police had originally said it was a gas leak that forced the closures on Hurst Way at Waverley Street and Planet Street at Georgina Street while emergency crews deal with the leak, but a WFPS member at the scene told CBC News it was a chlorine leak.

The streets were reopened by 1:45 p.m.
