Connecting Links

A connecting link is a municipal road or bridge system that connects two ends of a provincial highway through a community. Timmins is one of 77 Ontario municipalities that has a designated connecting link and is eligible or provincial funding to help cover the cost of construction or rehabilitation. Timmins' Connecting Link is one of the largest in the province, including just over 21 km of highway, and runs from Kamiskotia Rd. the Porcupine ONR Crossing.

The City started rehabilitating our Connecting Link in 2016 by completing a preliminary design that divided the roadway into  14 segments. In addition to full-depth reconstruction of the roadway, construction can include replacement of underground services like water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer, pole relocation, illumination at intersections, traffic signals, curbs and sidewalks.
