Bailey Mackinnon, an employee at the Pizza Girls, told Global News on Sunday that the damaged water main slowed business down significantly.

“We were one of the few places that was actually open with the water still turned off but it was not very busy at all, mostly construction workers,” Mackinnon said.

The intersection of Grafton and Blower Streets is now open to traffic.
