The City is wrapping up work on several construction projects to maintain and improve roads and infrastructure throughout the city. Here is the latest progress report as of Tuesday, November 1, 2022:

Connecting Link – all curb work is done. This week, crews are working on the roadway surface and will then move onto sidewalks. Electrical work (street lights, traffic signals) is also being scheduled. There is no final date for completion at this time.

Denise St. (COMPLETED SOON) – paving is scheduled for tomorrow. We anticipate that the road will be open to traffic by the end of the week. Crews have been keeping up with landscaping, but there will be some soft restoration to finish up (driveways and sod).

Airport Rd. (COMPLETED SOON) – there’s no impact to traffic. Crews are finishing up soft restoration on sod and have a couple of small patches to pave.

Work on the Bruce Ave. Bridge continues. The warm weather has worked in our favour as contractors push ahead. There is no final date for completion at this time.

Intersection of Brousseau and Hart – crews are finishing up with paving.

Intersection of Preston and Belanger – crews are finishing up with paving.

We appreciate your continued patience with detours, road closures, and other disruptions that happen during construction season. Improving and maintaining our infrastructure is necessary and important. Thank you for your cooperation.

Effective today, March 1, proof of vaccination requirements and capacity limits have been lifted at City of Timmins’ arenas, including the Archie Dillon Sportsplex Pool and all arena spectator stands. The City of Timmins will continue to follow recommendations as outlined by the Province of Ontario.

Other protective health measures including mask/face coverings and COVID-19 screening will remain in place. Masks are required indoors at all times in all arenas when not actively engaged in an activity. Continue to wash your hands often, wear a mask, and stay home if you are experiencing symptoms.

All employees and contractors working on location at a City arena will still be required to provide proof of vaccination.

It’s inevitable: winter is coming. In preparation for the cold and snow, the City of Timmins is reminding residents of winter by-laws that will shortly go into effect.

The winter overnight parking ban takes effect on Tuesday, November 1 and helps ensure that Public Works can complete snow removal operations and keep Timmins’ roads safe and clear. From November 1 until April 30 any vehicle parked on the street between the hours of 11:30 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. will be subject to a $50 fine and the vehicle may be towed at the expense of the owner (unless you are in an area exempt from the winter parking ban).

The City of Timmins will inform residents of winter road maintenance with temporary “no parking” snow removal signs (yellow and red in colour), posted before snow removal begins. A weekly snow removal schedule will also be posted online at and shared to the City’s Facebook page. Remember to look for signs posted on your street to ensure parking has not been restricted in your area.

The City of Timmins Snow By-law 1993-4162 provides guidelines for clearing snow from your property. Snow must never be placed onto the street or sidewalk. Moving snow from your driveway onto the sidewalk or street can create various safety hazards, obstruct pedestrian traffic, or obstruct the view of drivers. Even a small amount of snow left on a sidewalk can cause accessibility issues for some our residents.

And finally, if you plan on installing a temporary structure such as a winter car shelter, you will require a permit from the City of Timmins. A seasonal structure permit is just $15. Approved seasonal structures can be erected between October 1 and April 30. You will need to submit an application (available online at, your site plan, and payment to Service Timmins.

For additional information, contact Service Timmins at or by phone at 705-264-1331.
