Timmins Transit is continuing an Earth Day tradition … free bus rides on Monday, April 22.

Helping our planet can be as simple as choosing public transportation. Riding the bus can help lower our greenhouse gas emissions and conserve energy and fuel by reducing the number of private vehicles on the road.

But the benefits of public transportation do not stop there.

Did you know?

  • Public transit makes our roads safer. Transit operators generally have more driver training, drive at lower speeds, and avoid high-risk driving situations.
  • Public transit reduces traffic congestion. This is particularly helpful during busy road construction and maintenance months.
  • Public transit can increase your physical activity. A bus ride often starts and ends with some form of activity (like walking) to and from the bus stop.

On Monday, April 22 ride the bus for planet earth! It’s free and it’ll give the environment a break. Where will you go?

The City of Timmins, Environmental Services Department wishes to advise the public of a water main break, which can cause temporary water service disruptions, in the following area:

Area:
On Bonaventure Dr. between Meadow Ln and Shirley St S

Date & Time of Disruption:
April 18, 2024 – 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM

Homeowners and/or businesses within the area might experience water service disruptions which can include but not limited to no water, low pressure and/or discoloured water. It is recommended not to drink or wash laundry with discoloured water. While it is not harmful to your health, it can stain laundry. Should the water be discoloured, it is advised to turn on the COLD water tap closest to the source (usually your laundry tub tap) and let it run for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the water colour has returned to normal.

Road closure within this area might last longer than the estimated date and time of disruption once the repair is made.

City staff would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during this work.

Work on the final downtown segment of the Connecting Link moves ahead Monday, April 15 with full closure of Algonquin Blvd. E. between Balsam St. and west of Brunette Rd. The current road closure will be expanded along Algonquin Blvd. E. to east of the Balsam St. intersection, and will close the Pine St. and Cedar St. intersections.

Grinding operations will start early next week to remove layers of asphalt from the road surface. This is expected to take 3-5 days. During that time, pedestrians crossing Algonquin Blvd. north to south will be able to cross at the Balsam St. and Brunette Rd. intersections on either end of the construction zone. This is temporary. Once initial grinding operations are complete, a pedestrian crossing will be placed at Pine St.

Sidewalks along the east and west of Algonquin Blvd. E. will remain open while grinding is completed, safely blocked off from the active construction area.

Temporary traffic detours are already in place, with detour signage installed before Brunette Rd. and Mountjoy St. Motorists are asked to detour at Brunette Rd. or Mountjoy St. S., along Second Ave. Drivers should be prepared to stop at temporary traffic lights on Second Ave. at Brunette Rd. and Mountjoy St. S. Heavy truck traffic is being diverted at Shirley St. and Hwy. 655.

“City contractors are expediting site preparation, including removal of the existing asphalt,” says Scott Tam, Director of Growth and Infrastructure. “Once the overpass is removed, they will be ready to start work on excavation. We are closing the full construction zone to provide space for staging of materials and equipment, instead of using valuable municipal parking space in the downtown core.”

Removal of the overpass began earlier this month, with contractors removing ballast rock, saw cutting the concrete to begin removal, and drilling to remove concrete from embedded steel. The steel will be later cut and recycled.
