A large water-main break on Route 90 interrupted the morning commute in northwest Winnipeg, but all lanes have been re-opened.

The break occurred on the section of Route 90 known as Oak Point Highway near Selkirk Avenue early this morning. Police closed off both northbound and southbound lanes between Egesz Street and Logan Avenue.

Prior to the closure, large pools of water slowed traffic and caused some vehicles to stall. Reports indicate two semi trailers were stuck in the icy mess.

Repair crews are on scene. Motorists are advised to use caution when driving in the area.
