Public Consultation for Porcupine Bridge Continues 
The Public Information Centre (PIC) held last evening at the Hoyle Community Centre had approximately 130 residents and stakeholders in attendance. The purpose was to discuss transportation alternatives for the Porcupine River corridor.

The Porcupine River Bridge on Frederick House Lake Rd. was closed last November over concerns of safety and structural integrity. Associated Engineering has presented three (3) possible design options that include replacement of the bridge; permanent detour around the closed structure; or, new road alignment east of the Porcupine River.

Now, the City of Timmins is providing a second opportunity for interested persons to provide comment on each transportation alternative in an online format.

Residents can participate online by viewing the information materials on the City’s project page ( Comments will be accepted from July 5, 2022 to July 18, 2022. Comments received will be integrated into a re-evaluation of each design alternative before a presentation is made to City council for deliberation.

The City of Timmins thanks residents for their participation in improving its active infrastructure.
