A water main break in St. Boniface has forced the closure of some major streets.

Marion Street is closed to traffic between Lagimodiere Boulevard and Holden Street as crews work to control the flow of water after a water main break in the area.

"Winter conditions make the leaks more challenging to find and control, as the water has more difficulty draining because of frozen catch basins," said a statement from the City of Winnipeg.

Motorists on Lagimodiere are also prevented from turning west onto Marion while the cleanup work is being done.

An update on lane closures will be provided once the leak is controlled and the street is cleared of ice.
