Carey Road at Ravine Way is now open to traffic after a water main break on Tuesday morning.

At around 6 a.m., Saanich Public Works were advised of a water main break near Uptown Mall. Water poured onto the road, impacting the TransCanada and the Patricia Bay Highway, and the Galloping Goose trail.

A salting truck was used to add brine to prevent icy roadways.

Police say traffic was being diverted in the area, including for users of the Galloping Goose Trail. At around 10:45 a.m., the District of Saanich said the Galloping Goose trail had reopened but cyclists were advised to use caution. Carey Road and Ravine Way is still closed to traffic while crews finish the cleanup. Cars and bikes are being directed to alternate routes.

By noon, Carey Road and Ravine Way were open to traffic. All businesses at Gateway Village were closed due to the water main break but reopened at around 4 p.m.
