A busy stretch of a West End street will be closed for the next few weeks as crews do water work in the area. 

The northbound lanes of Arlington Street between Wellington Avenue and Notre Dame Avenue shut down on Friday and are expected to remain that way until Jan. 20. 

Last week, the busy roadway was closed for two days as crews did emergency repairs following a water main break in the area. 

The city is encouraging motorists to plan ahead and use alternate routes when travelling through the area.
