Construction on segment 6 of the Connecting Link corridor continues with City contractors working on watermain and sewer infrastructure beneath Algonquin Blvd. Work is currently being completed between Rea St. and Preston St. moving east towards Mountjoy St.

The full segment will have complete reconstruction of the roadway, replacement of underground services, pole relocation, and curb installation.

Timmins Police Service has recently issued a couple of traffic advisories related to the southern detour along Commercial Ave. Motorists have been reminded that the “no left turn” signs on Wilson Ave. and Mountjoy St. S. should be adhered to and will be enforced and that the small section of Mattagami Blvd. S. at the bridge remains one-way. It is not part of any construction detour this summer. Motorists bypassing construction should continue to use the proper detour routes and be prepared for short delays.

Construction on segment 6 of the Connecting Link corridor continues with City contractors moving forward on storm, sanitary, and watermain infrastructure beneath Algonquin Blvd. To date, watermain work is completed up to Rea St. S. moving east from Theriault Blvd.

The segment between Theriault Blvd. and Mountjoy St. will have complete reconstruction of the roadway, replacement of underground services, pole relocation, and curb installation.

Motorists bypassing construction are encouraged to use the proper detour routes. While there will be some congestion, each route was designed to redirect a higher volume of traffic off Algonquin Blvd. as efficiently as possible. Motorists should be prepared for short delays. City contractors will be adding additional detour signs along the southerly route, flashing beacons at all temporary stop signs, and signage indicating a 4-way stop or all-way stop is ahead. Line painting crews are also scheduled this week to add stop lines and crosswalk markings for temporary stops.
