Flooding and the potential thereof remain the focus of emergency services in Timmins.

Another road closure is in place, this time on McChesney Road, as the Mattagami River creeps closer and closer to the roadway.  Consequently, the back entrance to TH&VS – officially called Auxilia Avenue – is also closed to general traffic.

The water of the swollen Mattagami River is so close to McChesney Rd., the road is now closed to all but through traffic. Consequently, the back entrance to TH&VS is also closed.

Local traffic can still get through.  That is people who live there, and technicians on service calls.

Timmins Police remind drivers that fines and demerit points await anyone who disobeys the barricades.

As on Norman St., Timmins Police have fines and demerit points waiting for any driver who disobeys the signs on barricades.
