Heavy trucks and buses in South Porcupine are going to be rerouted. Heavy vehicles, including Timmins Transit, are being warned to stay off the Bruce Avenue Bridge, and instead take a detour on Golden Avenue. There is a road sign up, which states the weight limits. The sign is a triple posting: six tonnes for any car without a trailer, 11 tonnes for a car with a trailer, and 15 tonnes for a car with two or more trailers, or trailer components.
The bridge has some wear on it, including rust and some cracks. A new sign has been posted along Bruce to show the weight limits.
