You would be best to avoid downtown Ottawa today, like completely.
It’s a headache down there.
This seems to have started in the general vicinity of the “World Exchange Building,” and due to a gas leak, authorities have evacuated and closed 4 blocks.
O’Connor is closed from Wellington to Albert.
Enbridge is calling this a “major gas leak.”
Some reports are saying that this is “LRT related.”
The leak first occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. at the intersection of Queen Street and O’Connor Street.
