Pie IX Blvd. to remain partly closed until at least Nov. 16
Closure affects southbound lanes of Pie IX Blvd. between Jean-Talon St. and Crémazie Blvd.
A portion of Pie IX Boulevard in the St-Michel district will remain closed for at least another week as crews complete work connected to a major water main break at the end of October.
City officials say visual inspections of the repair work are still required before the southbound lane of Pie IX Boulevard between Jean-Talon Street and Crémazie Boulevard can be reopened.
Those inspections could take as long as a week, delaying the reopening of that stretch until at least Nov. 16.

A 48-inch pipe located at the corner of Pie-IX Boulevard and Villeray Street burst Oct. 30, resulting in the flooding of several residences and the closure of local schools.
About 800 homes and businesses had no running water or electricity until the next day.
The cause of the water main break is still unknown.
