Memorial Avenue is closed today between Barrie Road and James Street as city crews repair a watermain break.

If you're out and about today, you may want to avoid a stretch of Memorial Avenue.

The city has shut down Memorial Avenue between Barrie Road and James Street to allow crews to repair a damaged watermain.

Only "local" traffic will be permitted between James Street West and Dunn Avenue.

As a result of this work, Orillia Transit's Georgian Route bus will not be travelling through Memorial Avenue at Barrie Road. That means seven bus stops will be out of service today.

The city says the road will likely be closed until 8 p.m. tonight.
