Curley wants bridge decision sooner than later, repairs to Carrigan Rd.

The city councillor for the rural east end of Timmins says it’s urgent to decide whether to replace the Porcupine River bridge at Hoyle.  It’s been closed since the fall, deemed unsafe for use. Traffic between Hwy.101 and Connaught is re-routed via Carrigan Rd.

John Curley says Carrigan isn’t built for the added traffic.

“It is in very rough shape,” he observes. “I’ve requested that the graders go out, because both entrances to Carrigan Rd. from 101 and from Frederickhouse, you pretty well have to come to a stop, because there are so many potholes.”

He wants the city engineering department to advise what should be done.

“It will be council’s decision on new bridge, new road or upgrade Carrigan Rd.,” Curley states.  “But regardless, Carrigan Rd. has to be worked on, first and foremost.”

Coun. Curley says if it’s to continue to be the detour, Carrigan needs immediate work, and widening in spots.
