CORNWALL – Drivers are having to navigate around a section of Brookdale Avenue after a water main break Thursday morning.

It’s one of two breaks to happen on a bitterly cold morning in the city where the temperature has been around minus 20.

The southbound lanes of Brookdale Avenue are closed from Rosemount Avenue to Ninth Street.

Meanwhile, crews have been working on another break on Second Street West between Brookdale Avenue and Hoople Avenue – the same area where another break happened on Dec. 7.

In both instances, detours are in place.
