Timmins is getting some numbers to do a detail design for the Kraft Creek Bridge project. It’s going to cost around $320,000 to do a geotechnical investigation, prepare a foundation design report, and look at road closures and detouring options.

However, City Engineer Luc Duval says that entire cost won’t fall on the city. He says Timmins will have to pay for a third of the price, which is around $110,00. The provincial and federal governments will be on the hook for the remainder of the cost.

The last engineering phase is scheduled for 2017, and the construction will happen in 2018. The cost for the detailed design has not been approved by council yet, but is expected to come to a vote on Monday.
