Wellington North reopening delayed

By Gordon Lambie

Citing “more complicated work than expected” the City of Sherbrooke did not reopen Wellington Street North to traffic on Monday as announced at the end of last week. “We initially thought we would be able to finish this afternoon, but we had certain difficulties with a break that we had on Wellington,” said Jean-Pierre Fortier, division chief for the construction and water management division on Monday morning, explaining that a piece of the water system dating back to 1920 took longer to repair than anticipated. As a result of the delay, the removal of fences and additional equipment from the street could not proceed on schedule and is instead set to take place Tuesday. “We are aiming for tomorrow afternoon, but I prefer to say Wednesday morning at the latest,” Fortier said of the new opening date.
