On Tuesday, November 14, 2023, Don Anderson Haulage will be hauling a Hydro One transformer from the Rail Siding on Hallnor Rd. to the transformer station on Brundy Ave. in Schumacher. The width of this load will occupy a two-lane road with limited shoulder area available.

On November 14, temporary road closures will be in effect on Aura Lake Rd. between Father Costello Dr. and Croatia Ave., prohibiting travel and parking between 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Temporary road closure signage will be in place.

Timmins Police Service will be escorting the load and assisting with traffic control along the route. Due to the height of the load, a number of utility trucks will also provide escort.

The move will begin on Hallnor Rd. on Tuesday, November 14th at 07:30 a.m. and will take approximately six hours to reach the transformer station. Expect temporary traffic delays along Hwy. 101 E., Father Costello Dr., Aura Lake Rd., and Croatia Ave. while the load passes through town. Consider arranging an alternative route to avoid delays.

Don Anderson Haulage and the City of Timmins appreciates everyone’s efforts and patience while we navigate this large and complex load through the community.
